Ranunculus asiaticus, Red is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful blooms These ranunculus tubers germinated well (about 85%) and had a long display of blooms. In the spring. They were started indoors in January and planted outside in March. We had blooms from mid-April to late May. The mid-April blooms had tighter flowers with more petals than the late-May blooms.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as pictured Out of 20 tubers 14 has survived (raised bed, good soil, sunny spot, protection from the frost with burlap during the winter). I was so excited finally seeing the flowers in the spring. However, the outcome was far from my expectations. Flowers appear to be looking like poppies, I can easily count all the petals. They last for 5-6 days in the vase even if cut as half open buds— nothing compared to real ranunculus with countless petals. Please see the photos. It’s very different from the advertised picture.
