What super pix, Tony. Easy to see  why these plants are so popular to paint and stitch, as well as grow.

Ranunculus asiaticus is in its best in Jordan at the moment.
Only the red form is growing there.
Here are some photos of it.

Just found this thread. Tony I love the white Ranunculus. I got a couple from Darren. One is growing really well. Hopefully I will get a flower next year. Something to look forward to.

A ranunculus sp. I collected in central Turkey. It has finely divided leaves and a tuber like R. asiaticus and is summer dormant.

Last year I showed a flower from a semi double Ranunculus I got from an old garden. Its back and again the flowers are semi double.

Assuming its Ranunculus speciosus/constantinopolitnus there is only one cultivar in the Plant Finder. This is the fully double  form that I grow already. Tomorrow I'll take side by side photos

One of my 'mongrel' asiaticus seedlings.

It hurts my eyes!!

I don't think it is virussed as I've seen plenty of similar seedlings when colour forms are crossed, but none with such a clear delineation between a strong red outer and yellow inner. 

I'm not sure I like it to be honest, it is approaching 'vulgar' - but at least it isn't double or I'd have binned it already..

Can someone ID this tall airy Ranunculus? It is chalky white and the upper flower is 13 inches 34 cm. The flowers are scented.

I'm wondering if I can cross this with parnassifolius
