Fritillaria persica Green Dreams

Commonly referred to as The Persian Lily, F. persica developed a mutation, or sport, that Mr. Verschoor found in his field over 30 years ago. We were finally able to add it to our collection in 2016 after years of longing. F. persica Green Dreams has large, pendant, bell-shaped, pale plum florets with a hazy green tint atop very strong stems. Its interior petals are half purple and half green, giving the impression of floral wings. It prefers good sunlight. You’ll need about four bulbs per square foot. Bulb size: 20 cm/up. Full sunlight. Bloom time in horticultural zone 5: April/May. Plant 6" to 7" deep and 8" to 10" apart. HZ: 4-8. Height: 30".

Fritillaria are The Art & Soul of Spring.

  • Information

  • Deer- and rodent-resistant Fritillaria have ivory, yellow, green, plum or two-tone pedant, bell-shaped flowers. Growing from 8" to 36" tall with a bit of a skunky scent, most of our Fritillaria were native to the western Himalayas and Asia Minor from 1575 through 1905. They prefer rich, well-draining neutral pH soil and filtered sunlight. A bit more finicky than other flower bulbs, these heirlooms don't like being out of the soil, so plant them immediately upon receipt. Bulb sizes depend upon the variety. Bloom time: April/May. Plant the large Fritillaria bulbs 6" to 7" deep and 8" to 10" apart. Plant the smaller Fritillaria bulbs 5" to 6" deep and 5" to 6" apart. Variable horticultural zones ranging from 3-8 depending on the variety.
