Tall plants like Fritillaria persica ‘Ivory Bells’ are not only beautiful, but they’re also incredibly useful for bringing colour and interest at a height, bringing a real sense of fullness to any planting scheme. Even if space in your garden is limited, you can grow wonderfully impressive fritillaries like this. These upright plants make a fantastic impact when grown in big groups in borders, but taking up very little foot-room, they’re also handy for filling spaces in narrow borders or small gardens.
The best borders in in the world wouldn’t look half as good without being jam-packed full of beautiful flowers all at different heights. Tall flowers play a very important role, towering behind lower-growing varieties and adding that much-needed extra dimension. What’s more, tall-flowering bulbs are often quite narrow in habit, so they add that sought-after fullness without taking up too much foot room. Plus, the closer the flowers are to head-height, the more you can enjoy them!
