Fabulous Fritillaria

Leave a comment

Fritillaria meleagris: a bulb that prefers dappled to full sun, and needs consistent moisture throughout the growing season. However, it will not thrive in soggy soil. This lily has a faint checkerboard pattern. Allow the leaves to die back before removing, they are needed for photosynthesis. By mid summer the plant goes dormant. You can pull or clip the browning leaves at this time without any worries. Fritillaria makes a wonderful cut flower.
