How to Grow Fritillaria

Fritillaria are spring flowering Bulbs, grown for their bell shaped flowers. Drainage is important, plant the bulb on its side at a depth of 5" so that the hollow crown does not hold water and surround it with coarse sand to improve drainage.

The dwarf varieties of Fritillaria species are best grown in clumps in borders; groups of 5-7 bulbs are most effective. Place them in an open sunny position and do not let them dry out. They work better in a stony Soil. Plant the small ones at a depth of 2-3".

Stake the large Crown Imperial type of Fritillaria's for support during the flowering period and fertilize all with organic fertilizer early March. After flowering let the foliage die back naturally and cut back stems to ground level and mark the spot with a cane to avoid damaging the bulb during the dormant season. Best left undisturbed. Give a mulch cover in winter.
