Ranunculus ficaria 'Orange You Cute' is a Plant Delights Nursery introduction...a rare garden seedling with lovely 8" wide rosettes of silver and green patterned leaves topped, starting in late winter (mid-February in NC), with 4" tall stalks of bright, golden-orange anemone-style flowers. The flowers continue for 1-2 months depending on the weather, then go summer dormant. While we see very little seeding, the original species is a pest of the first order so we'd recommend not planting these near a native natural area.
