Fritillaria meleagris Mixed - Snake's Head Fritillary Bulbs
Fritillaria meleagris bulbs send up beautiful, intriguing chequered flowers in unusual colours, ranging from pinkish-purple through to deep purple. Together with some contrasting whites; they really do look as if they've been made from snakeskin.
Unlike most bulbs fritillaria meleagris thrive in moist soils and are found naturally in water meadows
Suitable wild habitats for our native Fritillaries have declined significantly over the years but as they grow well in any moist soil, you can help save them by growing some in a damp spot in your garden.
Left to self seed, over the years they will colonise.
