Ranunculus prietoi 'Moonlight'

Height x Spread:  40cm x 30cm

A truly delightful buttercup flowering in spring, with dainty pale lemon-yellow single flowers highlighted with a green eye, held on slender stems over tufts of narrow grass-like grey-green foliage.

This hard to find hybrid cross between Ranunculus amplexicaulis and R. gramineus 'Pardal' prefers a well-drained soil in full sun.  Its delicate looks belie its toughness, as it is very hardy and can withstand temperatures colder than -20 degrees centigrade.  Perfect for a rock garden or alpine trough, it also looks stunning planted in drifts through a gravel garden.  Make sure you plant it where you can see it at dusk, when the soft lemon shines out of the gloom - exquisite.
