Romantic Renuculas

Renuculas really make me feel like spring. I can't say I've seen many in the desert, but I have always enjoyed these colorful flowers, and their many shades and variations. A couple of weeks ago, we stopped for a brief Nordstrom fix at the Oaks mall in Thousand Oaks. Brad bought two pairs of shoes, and I came out empty handed, but I had a delightful time in the parking lot, photographing these lovely flowers!

Yellow is my "happy color", so I'll start there. Renuculas make me happy!

These reminded me of Nancy, who loves orange.

These white renuculas look like a wedding cake!

How about a bright sassy red? Hmmmmmm...red and sassy? Sounds like Sandi!

Many renuculas look like they have been "touched up" with nature's paintbrush. I love the ones whose petals look like they've been dipped or tinted on the edges in Easter egg colors!

White with pink, or pink with white?

These white ones with a tiny edge of purple were very pretty.

How about yellow dipped in orange?

These looked like lovely ladies: soft green centers with vanilla petals and pink skirts!

I always save my favorite for last, so here it is: yellow with peach and pink!

Great photos! Have you ever seen the Flower Fields of renuculas in Carlsbad-they're in bloom right now.

They are one of my very favorites. In Hamburg I often had a pitcher of them gracing my dining table, they always made me very happy. Beautiful photos.

Great photos. I love your choices. These are beautiful flowers.

Very beautiful, Palma!

I don't get to see Renuculas very often, so thanks for sharing. They're such beautiful colors.

I have never seen these before, they are gorgeous!!

jgk:

I miss them, from California days. None of those kind of "bulbs" grow here.

Karen:

Yes, renuculas are quite beautiful. Does anyone have any information on how to care for and grow them? We received some potted blooms for Easter and are unsure of what to do next. Thanks!
