Fritillaria meleagris – Snakeshead fritillary


Stunning and unusual native bulb

SKU: BERE WHI-1 Category:


One of our most stunning and unusual native bulbs. Beautiful chequered pink and purple hanging large bell-shaped flowers.

Height: 25cm
Month: April – May
Light: full sun, partial shade
Soil: well-drained but damp, humus-rich, moisture retentive

Protected in the wild, they are quite hard to find now but look amazing scattered through their native meadows. Useful in the garden when naturalised in damp woodlands or informal areas of grass. This selection may include the white form of the flower.

Care: Plant in autumn in well-drained, moisture-retentive soil. Plant bulbs about three times as deep as the height of the bulb. Allow to die back in early summer before removing leaves.
