Fritillaria Meleagris 'Snake's Head Lady' | 10 Bulbs Per Pack
Fritillaria Meleagris 'Snake's Head Lady' | 10 Bulbs Per Pack

Pretty nodding white and pale pink checkerboard bell-shaped flowers with linear greyish-green leaves flowering in April/May in the mid-spring border and reaching heights of 20cm (8").  Ideal to grow in raised beds, rock gardens, wild flower meadows and cottage gardens. We love these unusual and quirky plants and think they look great planted around fruit trees and deciduous shrubs in the garden and they always give a wonderful show.

*Please Note, some flowers produced may be solid white in colour*

Handle the small fragile bulbs carefully and plant them quite deeply, at four times their own depth. They prefer rich, well-drained soils and prefer to be partly shaded.

Snakeshead fritillaria are perennial bulbs that, if grown in grassy areas, will naturalise over time. Leave the area unmown until the seed has set. Once established the offsets can be divided in late summer.
