When it comes to captivating floral beauty, up there among the very exquisite flowers is the ranunculus. This stunning bloom is renowned for its delicate rosette of curling, frilly petals, and an array of beautiful colors. Although these flowers may, almost, have some similar characteristics to peonies, they are, indeed, unique and have specific qualities of their own, making them just as exquisite as they are.

The Ranunculus Butterfly™ series from 's-Gravenzande-based grower Monarch Flowers, is an even more exceptional ranunculus breed that stands in a league of its own. The series is supplied by Coloríginz, an importer of special flowers, beautiful roses, and fresh foliage from across the world.

What Are the Exquisite Qualities of Ranunculus Butterfly™?

One of the defining characteristics of the Ranunculus Butterfly™ series is the natural variation in tone put on display by each bloom. This ombre quality of the flower’s petals, they say, ensures that hardly are two of their blooms quite exactly alike. The colorful tonal variation, therefore, creates a variable display of colors that capture the imagination. Also, from the glittery sheen of the petals to the mesmerizing hues, these flowers possess an allure that is quite hard to resist.

Furthermore, the variety is essentially unique due to its single-formed flowers and because the stems can carry seven to fifteen flowers each. A closer look reveals that the flower petals have a tiny layer of wax that gives them a somewhat glistening appearance. This waxy layer also gives them a long vase life, making the Ranunculus Butterfly™ series a notable cut flower.

Despite their delicate appearance, these blooms are, likewise, remarkably sturdy; a quality that allows them to grace floral arrangements and bouquets for an extended period. Even more, their ability to retain their beauty and freshness makes them a favorite choice for special occasions such as weddings, and in other high-end floral designs.

And that’s not all! The Ranunculus Butterfly™ series, which is exclusively available at Coloríginz, also, has a high ornamental value, possesses long non-hollow stems with many flowers per stalk, has bright colors, possesses a long blooming time, and has minimal disease-susceptibility.

It, therefore, wouldn’t come as a surprise that these flowers, other than being grown in the Netherlands, are also available from week one to week 22 from Italy, and similarly produced in Kenya (as of April), have won several ‘Glazen Tulip Award’ nominee awards.

In 2019, for instance, the Ranunculus Butterfly™ Ariadne® was honored with the well-regarded Dutch Tulip Award, for its exceptional quality and allure, a recognition that solidified the Ranunculus Butterfly™ series' status as a top-tier flower. This pleasant variety, known for its soft pink color, and whose natural appearance resembles a charming field bouquet, making it a favorite choice for floral arrangements, was nominated in the cut flower category.

Then, in 2021, building on this success, another flower from the Ranunculus Butterfly™ family achieved another accolade. The Ranunculus Butterfly™ Hera® from Monarch Flowers came second in the presentation of the Glass Tulip Award in the category of cut flowers. Moreover, at the 2019 Keukenhof, the Ranunculus Butterfly™ Lycia® earned the first prize in the category 'Special Bulb Cut 2019'.

A Focus on Sustainably-Produced Ranunculus Butterfly™… and Other Flowers

Even as Coloríginz builds cooperation with growers and customers across the world and ensures that it undertakes its activities differently; by being more original and efficient, and advancing more outstanding products, an important element of the enterprise’s success is its investment in sustainably-produced flowers.
