Fritillaria persica

Commonly known as The Persian Lily, this showy, statuesque 1585 heirloom creates a focal point in late spring display gardens. It offers a profusion of plum-colored, pendant bell-shaped flowers on strong 30" stalks above blue-green, wavy foliage. Some flowering racemes can have loosely compacted pendant florets while others, perhaps more mature specimens, can have up to 30 more tightly compacted florets. They are terrific planted in clusters of three or more for best effect, or blended with F. persica Ivory Bells. 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.
