Description

Compose a fine art study in your early summer borders with the silken ivory petals of Fritillaria pallidiflora, to delight even the most discerning gaze. The pearly bell-shaped flowers tumble like taffeta skirts against slender silvery foliage, conjuring up all of the muted tones and sumptuous textures of a Dutch still life painting. Fritillaries are prized for their ability to put on a spring spectacular so effortlessly - this very special are scarcely available variety will extend the fritillary season with a brilliant burst of blooms in early summer.

Awarded a prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit for its reliability in appropriate conditions, Fritillaria pallidiflora (a.k.a. Siberian fritillary) will positively thrive in a well-drained humus-rich soil, flourishing in sunshine and semi shade alike. If elegance and refinement best describes your gardening style, this understated but exquisite variety will be just what you need to complete your scheme.
