Description

Splashed as they are with colours that would grace an artist’s brush, these detailed little blooms will entrance. Fritillaria acmopetala is also known as the Pointed-Petal Fritillary, and sure enough, each petal comes to a pixie-like point at its tip. Burgundy and cream combine and contrast harmoniously – you’d almost expect those little bells to begin chiming as they nod in the passing breezes.

Place your Fritillaria acmopetala at the forefront of beds or borders, add a touch of spice to cottage gardens, pop them into pots – no matter how you choose to grow them, they’re sure to delight if you offer them the prominent position they deserve. Choose the right spot, and they’ll be back for years to come.
