Fritillaria persica gives a very noble and proud appearance! It comes from the same family as the crown imperial (Fritillaria imperialis) and the snake’s head (Fritillaria meleagris). Fritillatia persica grows one tall stem that reaches up to 75-100 cm tall with a group of bell-shaped flowers facing downwards. Each flower has a slightly pale, but a very elegant deep purple colour. It may seem like the colour is camouflaged with a shade, but Queen Flowerbulbs assures you that this variety is a real eye-catcher!

It’s winter-sturdy and does not require any special care. Give the Fritillaria persica a sunny spot in a rich soil and it will not disappoint you!

Other information

  • First loosen the soil well where the flower bulbs will be planted. Then the soil is easier to work with.
  • Dig a hole and make sure it is 2 to 3 times as deep as the height of the fritillaria bulbs.
  • For the distance between the bulbs, make sure it is 2 times the diameter of the bulbs.
  • Plant the flower bulbs in the hole with the pointed side facing up or with the root base facing down.
  • Cover the fritillaria bulbs with soil and water them well.

Pre-orders can be placed until the first week of August, which will be shipped in the first half of September and delivered in October.
