What Are Ranunculus Flowers?
Although you may not have heard of ranunculus flowers before, there's a pretty good chance you've heard of buttercups. Ranunculus are "layered petals that look like small cups when viewed from the top," says expert florist Michelle Morgan of Kuhn Flowers.
Ranunculus are sometimes confused with peonies. When it comes to distinguishing ranunculus from peonies, Kuhn explains that "ranunculus have many layers of petals that look like small cups, while peonies typically come with more rounded petals." She adds that "ranunculus is originally from Europe, North Africa and parts of Asia. Peonies are grown more so in Italy and cooler parts of the USA."
Ranunculus are beloved by many and are known to symbolize "joy, happiness, charm and attractiveness," says expert florist Jessica Gill of Luna Rose Florist.
There's a ranunculus color for just about every couple. As far as ranunculus colors go "you've got ranunculus in an array of shades like pink, yellow, white, red, or orange," notes Morgan.
Ranunculus Flower Season
Wondering when ranunculus flower growing season is? With regard to their season, "ranunculus blooms in spring and summer, usually from March to August; however, South America almost boasts all year-round production," explains Morgan.
Average Ranunculus Cost
Morgan explains that the cost of ranunculus depends on their size and type. However, they usually cost between $5 and $10 per stem.

What Flowers Go With Ranunculus in a Bouquet?
Gill notes that ranunculus are versatile flowers and can complement a variety of flowers. She says that "some of my favorite combinations include anemones, garden roses, tulips, delphiniums and stocks."
Morgan adds that ranunculus can be incorporated into bouquets with "flowers such as roses, peonies and tulips for a vibrant and cheerful composition." Additionally, she says that ranunculus "pair well with flowers such as roses, lisianthus, baby's breath, sweet peas, freesia, hydrangea and anemones and that soft drapey greens and astilbe also make great additions to help bring out the beauty and gracefulness of ranunculus."
How Long Do Ranunculus Last?
One of the great things about ranunculus is that they can last a while if properly taken care of and in proper conditions. Gill explains that "if kept in nice fresh water, ranunculus can last around 10 days in a vase. However, if you use them in a bridal bouquet, they are likely to be out of water for a significant amount of time, which could lead to them wilting." She suggests keeping bouquets in water for as long as possible or as soon as they show signs of wilting to perk them back up.
