Fritillaria (Fritillary)

Fritillaries or Imperial Crowns belong to the earliest flowering bulbs with a typical trumpet like flowers which are usually pendulous. Most species require some extra soil drainage and protection from earth living slugs (e.g. by embedding the bulbs in coarse sand). Suited for a sunny spot in the rock garden.
Sow autumn or early spring in any well drained to sandy soil in full sun. Keep soil rather dry until first leaves appear in (late) spring. Pot cultivation for at least two years. Keep pots in a sheltered place in winter. Transplant young bulbs in late summer during dormancy.
All are USDA Climate Zone 6 unless otherwise specified.
20 seeds per package.
