Italian Ranunculus

If you're looking for some exotic unusual flower for your wedding bouquet, look no further than the lush Italian Ranunculus, featured on the Gotham Gardens blog.

I love the look of the bloom on the left that's just opening, so you get all that vibrant red with the lovely green contrast.

The Gotham Gardens florists call it "lettuce ranunculus," given that the green insides get quite full and leafy looking when the flower is in full bloom.
