Meleagris Mix Frittilaria Bulbs

Fritillaria Meleagris is also called Snakes Head because of the snake-like pattern on the petals. The colors range from a deep burgundy to a dark pink, set off by a few white blooms. The dark palette and downward facing blooms are a moody accent to the cheerful spring blooms we typically see in April and May.

Frittilaria grow from Fall-planted bulbs, and will spread, or 'naturalize,' if they're happy. They like shady spots, and their moody blooms will win your heart.

Growing Info
How to Plant Dig a hole and tuck your bulb in, pointy side or indentation up with any dried roots remaining on the other side pointing down, about 3" deep. Not sure which way is which? Plant them sideways - they'll sort it out themselves. Now give your bulb a good wish, a few solid pats to compress the soil around it, a long drink of water, and wait for spring
Where to Plant Find a place that gets partial shade, and space bulbs about 3" apart
When to Plant Plant in the fall, anytime before the ground freezes for the last time
When to Expect Blooms Mid spring
Care Instructions Water once sprouts appear, if soil is very dry
Extra Credit Wait for the foliage to wilt and turn yellow before clipping it back, so that the bulb can preserve energy for the next year's blooms
