Description

Nodding green "bells" are broadly striped with dark-maroon purple from their base to the tip of their petals. Small bulb-lets produced at the base of the larger bulbs each year will mature to flowering size in three to four years and produce a stronger presence in the garden. Plant this fritillaria in full sun to partial shade and in moderately moist and fertile soils. Components of the plant sap deter rabbits, deer, squirrels, and chipmunks.
