Product Information

A stunning mix of colours from white to purple, Fritillaria meleagris, also known as 'Snakeshead' due to its unusual checkerboard markings, is a sure-fire winner.

Despite appearing delicate with bell-shaped flowers hanging and swaying in the wind with outstanding beauty, this is also remarkably hardy and will happily thrive in shaded woodland-like spots.

Ready to make a splash wherever planted, this mix is 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 30 bulbs, size 6/7 ready to plant out in autumn.

Care Information

Planting Advice for Fritillaria:

  • Needs a moderately fertile, very well-drained soil and is intolerant of wet when dormant. Handle the fragile bulbs carefully and plant at four times their own depth.
  • Plant in a sunny position where they can get some shade during the hottest part of the day  they are ideal for gravel gardens.

Aftercare Advice for Fritillaria:

  • If growing in a pot, put a layer of gravel at the bottom of the pot to help keep the compost draining freely.
  • Add a handful of coarse sand or grit to the potting compost and then place the bulbs in a planting hole 3 times as deep as the height of the bulbs.
  • To protect the bulbs against frost, place the pot in a frost-free area or cover it with bubble wrap over winter.
  • Water during dry periods.

Trimming advice for Fritillaria:

  • Allow the stem to turn brown before cutting off close to the soil.
