Fritillaria meleagris

Product Description: 15 bulbs
Order Code: 85-27
Common Name: Snakeshead Fritillary
Availability: Currently Available


Snakeshead Fritillary". Dark chequered, nodding, maroon-coloured bells, like repentant serpents. Once it flourished in perhaps 25 counties, now only in that many sites typically in damp, grassy, late-cut meadows. Increasing in these sort of conditions. Plant 4" (10cm) deep in drifts, 3" (7.5cm) apart. April 12"

The snakeshead fritillary is one of few 'Frits' that likes a cool moist heavier soil, possibly in light rough grass. They seem to do best in the open though will grow in some shade.  

 Best planted early so orders close for this item in early September.
