Ranunculus are one of the most popular spring flowers, often referred to as the rose of spring thanks to their ruffled petals and long stems.

Beautiful & (very) long-lasting

Ranunculus are a staple in bridal bouquets (think March-April weddings) and are perfect in any arrangement thanks to their long vase life.

In terms of flower care, make sure that you cut the stems at a sharp 45-degree angle to help the flower drink the water and stay fresh and hydrated for up to 10 days (sometimes more).

Background check

Now onto the name... Originally from Asia, Ranunculus was introduced to Europe in the 16th century. The name Ranunculus means little frog in Latin (rana), because many species can be found near water. 

Ranunculus belongs to the Ranunculaceae (buttercup) family and the most popular specie is known as ranunculus asiaticus, also called Persian buttercup in English or Florists' ranunculus in French.

(if you were wondering, yes, buttercups are a type of ranunculus)

A meaningful bloom

In Flower language, Ranunculus symbolizes charm and attractiveness. Now you know what flowers to pick if you have a crush on someone. 

Good news is that here, at Cabane, we are obsessed with this flower and you will see Ranunculus in our weekly arrangements as long as they are in season!
