Fritillaria Elwesii

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



Slim stems of chocolate and olive flared bells are produced by Fritillary elwesii throughout April and May, adding a graceful edge to naturalistic borders and containers.

A Turkish native which thrives in sun or dappled shade and will naturalise in grassy areas and borders. As with most Fritillaries, this variety will do best in well-drained, humus-rich soil which does not completely dry out.

Stems up to 35cm tall hold one or two of the whimsical flowers which appear streaked with gold when backlit by the sun. Plant the bulbs where you will enjoy the charm of these exquisite fritillaries up close.
