    One for the connoisseurs and collectors, this rare and unusual Fritillaria is actually one of the most robust varieties. In early spring, it produces small clusters of nodding, bell-shaped flowers, that are topped with a jaunty tuft of leaf-like bracts. They are ideal for pots and containers, or plunged straight into a sunny border with well drained soil. Perfect if you are looking for something out of the ordinary.

  • Garden care: Plant 15cm (7in) deep from September to November in fertile, well-drained soil.
  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs
