  • Stem Count:  10 stems
  • Color:  Red
  • Season:  All Year
  • Special Care Note: Ranunculus can come extremely curved, and possibly bend under the weight of the bud. Wiring is recommended if curves are not desired.
  • Flower Design Type: Accent Flower
  • Pros/Cons
  • Flower Care
  • Quantity Help
  • Subs

The Good: Ranunculus are our favorites! They are so dainty and beautiful they are a staple at almost every wedding! They are pretty hardy considering how delicate they appear and have the longest vase life out of all the delicate flowers (ie. peonies, anemones, veronica, etc)

The Bad:  Ranunculus can be very curved or bend under the weight of their own bloom so we find we need to wire our ranunculus about 50% of the time. See video below. Use 22-gauge straight floral wire.

  • Give the stems a fresh cut, and place in cool water.
  • Remove leaves below waterline.
  • Ranunculus can come in tight, so place them in a sunny location to encourage opening.
  • Ranunculus OFTEN need to be wired because the bloom is heavier than what the stem can support. See video below.

Ranunculus are considered an 'Accent Flower'. Based on our design ratio suggestions here's our recommended quantity suggestion:

  • Bridal Bouquet: 6-8 stems
  • Maids:  3-5 stems
  • Bouts:  1 stem
  • Corsages: 1-2 stem
  • Centerpieces: 3-5 stems
  • Large Arrangements: N/A. Typically too short-stemmed.

Flower Moxie reserves the right to make changes or substitutions. All substitutions are only done as a last resort, and only when the reasons for doing so are reasonable and genuine. For example, if a flower becomes unavailable (off-crop), incorrect color, or not in good condition to grace a wedding function we will substitute a flower that has a similar color and price-point. 

Acceptable Subs:  Spray roses, red anemones, possibly roses or carnations paired with something else that works within your specific palette.
