The polka-dotted beauty of Fritillaria meleagris is admired in the plant world. It’s as though cheerful fairies have donned festive finery before romping through your garden to celebrate the arrival of spring. But whoever dreamed up the common name was thinking of things less gorgeous, and the name “Snake’s Head Fritillary” seems to have stuck. Still, there’s nothing to stop you thinking of fairies!

Fritillaria Meleagris will attract butterflies, bees and other pollinators to your garden. It's your spring-welcoming gift to them!
