Description

I’ve checked with many fritillary enthusiasts over the years and they seem to say the same thing — this one is the easiest and most reliable to grow for pots, so exquisite, I think they’d be fitting for a Fabergé studded, jewel-filled banquet. Let the feasting begin.

Care Tips

Choose a suitable location in a border that will get plenty of warm sunlight in summer, they love scorched and free-draining soil. After flowering has ended, wait until the leaves and stem turn yellow, after which it can be cut off at the base.
