Description

There is something truly marvellous about these statuesque fritillaries, which grow well in dappled shade and last for decades. I fell on this one last year for its early flowering.

This can be gift wrapped in our exclusive hessian sack, with ribbon and a Sarah Raven gift card. You will be able to add this to your basket once you begin the checkout process. To add a gift message to your order, simply fill out the details at the delivery stage of the checkout.

Please note: only items which are showing ‘in stock’ can be gift wrapped.

Care Tips

Once they have finished flowering, leave them to die back naturally to help bulk up the bulbs for next year.
