Ranunculus are one of my favorite flowers. I love the layers of tissue paper thin petals and how bright and cheery they look growing on a windowsill in Spring even if there's still four feet of snow outside. The Magic series are dwarf plants that only grow 6-8" with a spread of 4-6" and have double rosebud-shaped blooms. Plants go dormant after blooming.

From Bachman's (local flower shop) plant tag for this cultivar: need bright light, keep moist at all times while avoiding wilt and saturation, cooler temperatures will prolong flower life (optimum temperature is 60-65 degrees F).
