Description

These statuesque fritillaries grow well in dappled shade and last for decades. I fell on this one last year for its soft terracotta colouring and early flowering.

Care Tips

Plant the bulbs with the point facing upwards, 20cm deep approx 20-30cm apart. Protect new growth from slugs and snails. Once they have finished flowering, leave them to die back naturally to help bulk up the bulbs for next year.
