These Fritillaria are incredibly unusual plants. Stately and statuesque, between March until May tall flower stems rise from clumps of lance shaped, glossy green leaves. At the top, the downward facing bright orange blooms emerge in a ring around the stem, looking like a crown. These are topped by green, leafy bracts, giving a completely unique appearance.
Perfect for an early season display, these exotic looking plants are tough and hardy. They will naturalise slowly and are very easy to grow and the fragrance is said to repel moles mice and other rodents!
Supplied as a single bulb, size 20/24, ready to plant in the autumn, growing to a height of 1 m (3 ft) and width of 50 cm (16 in).
