A stunning mix of colours from purple to white, fritillaria meleagris is also known as Snakeshead due to its unusual checkerboard markings.
It has delicate bell-shaped flowers that hang and sway in the wind, and although beautiful and delicate looking, are remarkably hardy and will happily thrive in shady, woodland like spots. Ideal for creating border displays or for naturalising in shady spots under trees.
Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.
Supplied as a pack of 20 bulbs, size 6/7 ready to plant out in autumn.
