Snake’s head fritillary (Fritillaria meleagris) is a beautiful early flowering native bog plant described by the RHS as “one of the most exquisite jewels in the treasure house of British wild flowers”. This spring bulb has stunning delicate drooping bell-shaped purple or white flowers with an exquisite chequerboard pattern. The common name Snake’s head derives from the shape of the flower just before it opens.
This is a rare wildflower only occurring naturally in a few floodplain meadows in the UK. Flowers are produced from March to April usually one per stem, sometimes two: our 9cm and 1 litre plants are grown using 3 bulbs so will have 3 stems. It holds an RHS AGM.
Bulbs when available are sold in multiples of ten and are approximately 5-6cm circumference. Bulbs should be planted 10cm below surface of soil and minimum 10cm apart to create a nice group.
