Fritillaria Meleagris Alba are bell or pendant-shaped flowerheads of creamy, pale whites with checkered or snakeskin-like patterned flowerheads that is very subtle and more visible with the light green hues in the mid-rib of petals. Thin, grass-like foliage accompanies this unique white display of blooms

Heirloom wildflower species dating back several centuries, Fritillaria Meleagris Alba are ideal to naturalise woodland or grassy meadow settings. Great for planting in patios and pots due to their smaller size, also can be used in rock gardens and at the front of borders

Fritillaria are herbaceous perennial plants that grow from a bulb and in in the lily family, Liliaceae. Fritillaria are noted for several distinct attributes including single, nodding bell-shaped flowers. Some of the species has only single blooms while other varietals have racemes with multiple flowers. One of the odder characteristics of some of the plants within the Fritillaria genus is a distinct and unpleasant odour.

Uniquely beautiful and varied in their appearance and colourations, Fritillaria offer some of ornamental plants’ most complex designs and colours in their flowerheads. Heirloom varieties have been grown for centuries because of their attractive beauty and fantastic blooms.

Fritillaria can vary with preferences for areas with full sun to planting in shade gardens. Plant in fertile, well-drained soils. Plant bulbs with the tip side of the bulb facing upwards and root-side downwards at depths of 5-8cm with some depth variations for larger bulbs.

Fritillaria should be planted in the autumn or fall and regularly watered to ensure root growth before winter, followed with spring flowering. While Fritillaria make excellent cut flowers, this will likely impact the following year’s flower production. After blooming, allow foliage to die back own its own as this is a critical stage of the growth cycle restoring energy to the bulb for the following season’s growth and blooms
