- Dig a hole 4 times as deep as the bulb is high, the deeper the better as this will make stronger plants less likely to snap and more reliably perennial. Position on a bed of grit, on their side and backfill with plenty of grit to aid drainage.
Statuesque, serene, sophisticated and truly beautiful, this soft green belled, silver-leaved fritillary is a more free-flowering bloom than it’s better known dark crimson counterpart.

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.
