If you've ever taken the time to learn more about individual flowers in an arrangement you've bought, there's a good chance ranunculus flowers were in them. They are one of the all-time favorite flowers and come in nearly every color of the rainbow. Ranunculus are often easier to come by than, for instance, peonies and combine with pretty much everything. Think of them as a great pair of jeans for your flower wardrobe - they are a staple for every florist. And if you think that wasn't enough, the Ranunculus Clooney White is even bigger and better than the standard varieties you might already know. 

Ranunculus Clooney White - A Staple for Every Florist?

Add soft texture and lasting impressions to bouquets and other floral arrangements with the Ranunculus Clooney White from Anton Spaargaren. These blooms are larger than the standard varieties, with delicate layers of stark-white petals that gradually unfurl from a tight, green-eyed center. The petals of this ranunculus are true white; creating a crisp, striking bloom that looks as stunning in a wedding bouquet as it does in a mono-bouquet at home.

A Lush, Romantic Appeal

The Ranunculus is a genus made up of almost 600 species of flowers that belong to the plant family known as Ranunculaceae. The flowers are often referred to as water crowfoots, buttercups, or spearworts and are easily identifiable as a result of their cup-like blossoms with a multitude of paper-thin petals. They have the same lush, romantic appeal as peonies, but the color choices are more extensive and unlike peonies, they are available year-round.

Wait, is it Clooney or Cloni? 

The ranunculus Clooney series consists of many varieties in an abundance of shapes, sizes, and colors. Those of us who like to roam the markets (or the internet) looking for beautiful new varieties to use might have already spotted this ranunculus under the name 'Cloni'.

Is that the same variety? The answer: yes, it is. Same flower, different name. A likely explanation for this mix-up is that someone simply entered the wrong name into a database at some point and the name stuck. But the official name is ranunculus Clooney White, not Cloni - spelled the same as the last name of the charming actor that promotes those delicious small cups of coffee.
