We are very happy that ranunculus are back in season! Ranunculus is a genus of about 500 species of plants in the Ranunculaceae. Members of the genus include the buttercups, spearworts and water crowfoots. The name ranunculus is a combination of two Latin words, rana meaning frog and unculus meaning little. Legend has it, ranunculus flowers acquired this name because they grew along streams and were as plentiful as frogs in the spring. The ranunculus flower is meant to symbolise charm and attractiveness across cultures and generations. In the Victorian language of flowers, the ranunculus flower tells the recipient your think they are charming and attractive. A perfect choice for that special someone!
