These ranunculus look good in person. Only thing I would suggest to Afloral to improve if they make a new version of these would be to make the stems more bendable to get that wild ranunculus stem look. The color in real life looked just like the color in the photos on my screen - a slightly purplish burgundy. It was a little more purple than what I was after but I simply dusted it with a little Design Master spray and got the perfect dark reddish wine color I was after. Would love it if Afloral would make a slightly smaller version of the bloom as a second option to provide more variation in arrangements. Love it!
