Spring time flowers

on Tuesday, 06 March 2018. Posted in News

After the wintery start to March, we are all hoping that spring is about to arrive. Add Mother's Day to the mix, and we're all ready for a good dose of spring flowers. Funny How Flowers do That is a step ahead with a selection of three spring flowers to focus our attention: Ranunculus, Anemone and Leucospermum.




The origins of Ranunculus, Anemone and Leucospermum
Ranunculus originally comes all the way from Central Asia. By a roundabout route the flower finally ended up in Europe, where it was given its official name: Ranunculus. The Anemone originates from southern Europe and Asia. The South African Leucospermum originally grew on rocky slopes on the coasts in the south-west of the Cape of Good Hope.




Shapes and colours
Covering a good range of colours, these three are perfect to brighten up any spring day.




  • Ranunculus comes in white, yellow, orange, pink, red and purple.
  • Although originally orange, Leucospermum now also comes in ochre, lemon and a reddish colour.
  • With around 120 varieties, Anemones come in white, pink, red to violet and blue. Some have a single row of petals, others have more.
