Create a laid-back feel in your spring garden with this breezy beauty, Fritillaria elwesii. Delicate clusters of bell-shaped blooms show off a sleek colour contrast with their thick stripes of maroon and olive green – a relaxed and muted colour combo which can sit happily next to virtually anything. Nodding from slender arching stems, these graceful plants make a subtle and sophisticated statement in any style of garden.

If you like to stray from the conventional spring classics and appreciate something that’s a little bit different, this curious character should be on your list! Make the most of their unique but low-key looks by planting them close in a contemporary container where they can be admired up close on the patio. Fritillaria elwesii can also be dotted into mixed planting schemes in borders, or if it’s a natural look you’re going for, nestle them among lush grassy or meadow area. They’re totally versatile and suit a multitude of styles!
