Mystery Flower

Can you guess what this is?  It’s a pretty popular Spring flowering bulb…

Still puzzled?

 

If you couldn’t work it out don’t feel so bad.  When I first saw this in my local florist I did a double take as it was totally new to me too.  It’s actually a variety of ranunculus.  Have a look at the photo below and you’ll see the resemblance, especially with the younger flowers which haven’t fully opened.

Green & white ranunculus

 

I haven’t been able to find out it’s name so I assume it is still only available commercially to cut flower growers.  I look forward to the day that it is released as a bulb for home gardeners to grow.  I’ll be first in line!
