Description

Much taller than its close relative Fritillaria graeca, this one has 12 inch stems bearing up to three large jade green bells chequered with dark purple. Originally from a population found at over 1,500m in the Katara Pass of Northern Greece this is perfect in the garden as it is a high altitude plant well used to summer dampness.

Sowing Advice

Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, keeping the seed pot in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination so be very patient as many species will only germinate in the spring after chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on individual seedlings in small pots until of sufficient size to be potted on or planted out into the open ground.
