Hardy throughout the UK

Sale price £3.19

Naturalise groups of dainty Fritillaria uva-vulpis into your borders, beds or a wild meadow area and look forward to a chic display of nodding bell-shaped blooms popping up every spring! Also known as Fox's Grape Fritillary, there is a distinct grape resemblance in these rounded flowers—the petals are purple on the outside with a frosted-blueish sheen. Take a closer look when they’re in full flower and you’ll notice the petals flick outwards to reveal a perfectly contrasting flash of golden-yellow on the inside. This type of fritillary is muted and subtle, but plant them in big groups or swathes and when they get going, they build up quite a scene!

If you’re erring towards a more natural style, Fritillaria uva-vulpis is naturally gorgeous—it's a reliable little gem which will fit in perfectly with your collection of botanical beauties. That said, if you have a more formal, contemporary or vibrant style, you need not be without this special fritillary. Fritillaria uva-vulpis makes a great pairing with impressive and statuesque spring flowering varieties like tulips, narcissus and hyacinths in bright shades of orange, purple, pink, white or soft green.
