The Q&A Archives: Growing Ranunculus

Question: We live in a swampy area that has a variety of soil and sunlight conditions. I would like to know if there is a possibility of growing Ranunculus in my area. The sunny area of our land is very sandy and can be very dry. Judy Patrick Merritt Island, FL

Answer: Ranunculus likes a cooler environment than you have in Florida, but if you want to give it a try, I'd plant it in a shady, moist spot, perhaps under trees, so it will stay cooler and the moisture will keep the roots happy. With any luck, it should survive and prosper, perhaps even spread in the cool, moist area.
