A pagoda fritillary from the dry country in the Middle East, I saw groves of something looking very like this in the grassy hills of northern Jordan in Spring 2019 and have been wanting to grow a persica-style fritillary as wonderful ever since. We’ve now trialled this for enough years to know it flowers reliably unlike many in the persica group.

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.
