Description

This choice dwarf species bears plump waxy bells of lime green which are heavily brushed with chocolate. It will survive in a well protected scree but is best grown in a pot in an alpine house. One of the Middle Eastern species, this lovely flower is native to Iran, Iraq, Turkey, Syria, and Lebanon and is sometimes now called Fritillaria kurdica .

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.
