Ranunculus ficaria 'Brazen Hussy'
Common Name: Celandine Buttercup Family: Ranunculaceae (The Buttercup Family)

Ranunculus ficaria 'Brazen Hussy'
Zoom In Photo:

'Brazen Hussy' has to be one of the most entertaining cultivar names in all of horticulture. This special form of the European celandine buttercup has luscious, burgundy-black foliage and cheerful yellow buttercups. This species is a spring ephemeral that will go completely dormant by summer, a trait that makes this species incredibly valuable for layering early spring colour into your garden planted between and underneath late-emerging perennials and deciduous shrubs.
