Ranunculus ficaria 'Dusky Maiden'

26th March 2005

A plant that was sent to Wisley, and described by Dr Alan Leslie. Distributed by Monksilver Nursery who's description says

"Single yellow flowers with greyish backed petals. The leaves are suffused purple."

My personal appetite for varieties with yellow flowers and brownish markings on the leaves is pretty close to sated, but I do rather enjoy this. There is a fresh yellowish tinge to the green and a bold clean darkness to the brown parts of the leaves, which lend it a quality in leaf that it might lack in description.
