Product Description

The 'Snakes Head' Fritillary is ever growing in popularity due to the unusual shaped pendants that it produces in spring. It will display the most bizarre, yet beautiful white bell-shaped flowers that look wonderful on their own or mixed with a collection of other fritillaria colours. A fantastic naturaliser that will multiply, particularly when planted in a damp location. This plant will be equally happy in a border or in pots / containers on a patio. 5cm+ bulbs supplied

Planting & Growing Instructions

Plant bulbs from September through to mid-December. Plant large bulbs at least 30cm deep, spaced 10cm apart. Small bulbs can be planted 5cm deep and around 3-4cm apart. For best results, plant in beds and borders, or even in containers if it's large enough and has holes for drainage. Deadhead regularly to encourage new growth, and leave to die back once they've finished flowering to allow the bulb to soak up all the energy from the sun.
