Ranunculus Butterfly™ is a cut flower introduced by Monarch Flowers. The flower is good for a long vase life. It is an unique variety because of its single and double formed flowers. The flower petals have a tiny layer of wax that gives them a sparkling appearance and a long vase life too. With 7 to 15 buds per stem, the Butterfly™ is the only ‘spray Ranunculus’. Also excellent for field bouquets.

Benefits:

  • New collection                  
  • Many flowers per stem
  • Long blooming time
  • Excellent vase life
  • Long stems
  • Bright colors
  • From tissue culture
  • MPS-A+ certified

Ranunculus Butterfly™ Hera®: large, double pink flowers
Ranunculus Butterfly™ Musa®: intense cerise-red color that continues to silver / bronze

The Ranunculus Romance™ is, next to the Ranunculus Butterfly™, another serie introduced by Monarch Flowers. With very large flowers, long (60 – 70 cm) and strong stems. But what makes our Ranunculus Romance™ so special is that all the varieties do not have hollow stems. This means, for example, that fewer diseases arise. But this also means that the stem gets woody and this causes the stem to break less quickly. The flower has a good vase life and each variety is distinctive with its own deep, intense and unique color.

Benefits:

  • New collection                  
  • Very early flowering
  • Very large flowers
  • Excellent vase life
  • Long stems
  • Bright colors
  • Produces less foliage (less diseases)
  • No hollow stems (less diseases)
  • From tissue culture
  • MPS-A+ certified

Ranunculus Romance™ Courchevel®: large bright white flowers

Ranunculus Romance™ Maritime®: beautiful soft pink flowers
Ranunculus Romance™ Nimes®: special color: light orange / salmon
