  • Information
  • Fritillaria
    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.
