This snakeshead fritillary looks brilliant at the front of a border or naturalised in grass. Happier on heavy soils than on dry chalk or sand.
If you want them to get established, you must leave plants to set seed and so do not mow until late June/July. They will then slowly naturalise as they do in the wild. Exquisite and beautiful, yet easy to grow.

Can be naturalised in grass but make sure you don't cut the foliage until June/July. Avoid disturbance and never cut them right down because they may stop flowering. Top dress annually with manure.
