Snakeshead fritillary


Snakeshead fritillary is a member of the lily family. It has a beautiful nodding head with a chequered pink and white pattern. In nature the Snakeshead fritillary can be found in meadows which flood every winter. Preferring a damp soil it is ideal planted in grassland, however it will also grow happily in ordinary garden soil. It also looks amazing when planted in a large pot full of Spring bulbs to bring an interesting focus to the garden in April. Take care that the corms are not attacked by mice!
