New Ranunculus....the Butterfly varieties
Monarch Flowers, the specialist in ranunculus
The Butterfly™ varieties, unique flowers!
Flowerbook is proud to introduce Monarch Flowers, known for their 'spray-ranunculus' a.k.a. the Butterfly™ series. Monarch Flowers started two years ago with these varieties and this year production is increased. They started with three varieties and it has grown to fifteen varieties! in this issue we wanted to show you some of these beauties!
Ranunculus Butterfly™ Ariadne®, one of the finalists for the Dutch Tulip Awards 2017
Not your average ranunculus, Butterfly™ varieties can carry seven to twelve flowers each. The flower petals have a tiny layer of wax that gives them a sparkling appearance and a long vase life too. This cut flower suits the current time perfectly thanks to its natural appearance of a field bouquet. In total Monarch grows fifteen different Butterfly™ varieties. You can find them all in Flowerbook or check out the website of Monarch Flowers.
Where and when to buy?
Depending on circumstances, these flowers will be available from December until May or possibly June. Check out the availability in the Flowerbook app and contact your local supplier for the buying options! In order to check the availability of all varieties, type in Monarch in the search bar. We will also be adding the Ranunculus Romance™ and Ranunculus Royal XXL™ to the application.
