Ranunculus ficaria ‘Brazen Hussy’


Celandine Buttercup

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.451.200


This is a unique form of the Lesser Celandine, a buttercup native to Europe. Plants bloom in early to late spring, forming a gorgeous mound of purple-black foliage, contrasting beautifully with the small yellow buttercup flowers. Clumps spread steadily to form a good-sized patch in time. Since this goes completely dormant in summer, plan on combining with something that will fill in the gap, such as a Hosta. Tolerates summer heat and humidity. Clumps may be easily divided in the late summer or fall when they are dormant.
