The Yellow Anemone or Wood Ginger as it is sometimes known, ranunculoides is a rich yellow flower with dense deep green foliage which is tinged purple. After taking their name from the Ancient Greek word anemo meaning wind, Anemones are commonly referred to as the ‘Windflower’. ranunculoides are similar to the Anemone nemerosa, or Wood Anemone, but native to south-eastern Europe they will cope better in more alkali based soils than other strands of nemerosa. The plant develops a slender rhizomatous root which should not be out of the ground for an extended period of time so we highly recommend that you plant the bulbs immediately upon receipt in a dampish soil. ranunculoides will grow to a height of 10cm and will bloom from May, into to June in cooler areas. ranunculoides has also been presented with the RHS Award of Merit.
