Florets - Floral Quote - # 107 - by Jane Packer



"Ranunculus - With their dense tiers of petals, these opulent flowers are reminiscent of ladies' ballgowns, looking their best when open and "full-skirted": sometimes, the fragile stems look as if they cannot support the weight of the petals. The wide variety of colours available makes ranunculus versatile: en masse they can look very modern, or placed in a rustic jug and mixed with other flowers they take on a charming cottagey look."
