Fritillaria michailovskyi - Fritillary Bulbs
Charming bell-shaped flowers
Fritillaria michailovskyi bulbs produce one of the daintiest fritillaries.
Fritillaria michailovskyi has unusual little flowers held in clusters of up to four blooms, on wiry stems. They are perfect for planting in light dry, shade under shrubs and trees or even in a rockery because they need excellent drainage to thrive. The maroon and gold flowers appear in early summer and they keep a bulb display going once tulips have faded.
These fritillaries have won the RHS award of Garden Merit (AGM) as excellent garden plants.
Plant Fritillaria michailovskyi bulbs in autumn in well drained, light soil to a depth of four times their height. The bulbs should be handled carefully when you plant because they are very fragile. These plants are native to Turkey and need free draining soil that doesn't become waterlogged.
In heavy or wet soils plant Fritillaria michailovskyi in containers.
Mulch around the plants' base with grit to protect from rain .
Leave the bulbs to naturalise and keep them protected from excess wet.
