This is a romper when compared to the matt, silver-leaved species, Fritillaria persica which needs a good hot spring to flower well. We have found this new hybrid much more reliable, easy to grow and magnificent, with its shiny flowers and leaves. There were groves of this at the Keukenhof too last spring.

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.
