The depth of colour on 'Vortex Red', invokes passion, seduction, love, adventure, and warmth. Should you desire a red flowering plant then look no further. 'Vortex' is a new series of the Asiatic ranunculus notable for its fully double flowers, which are so generously packed with paper-thin petals as to resemble a spinning vortex. 'The flowers of Asiatic ranunculus are prized for their long vase life and are often used in floral bouquets. Asiatic ranunculus are half-hardy (able to withstand no colder than -5 C), and require a dry, dormant period in summer. For this reason, they tend to be treated as annuals in the UK, used as early season bedding, either in borders, or hanging baskets and containers. Prefer well-draining soil in full sun. H&S: 20cm x 20cm. Half-hardy tuberous perennial. Read our ranunculus growing guide here. Consult the RHS hardiness rating guide to check suitability for your growing conditions.
