Upright, tall stems are topped with spires of majestic deep purple bell-like blooms — if you want to make a statement with your spring planting scheme, a set of these stately plants will certainly do the trick. There’s a real sense of excitement when planting such a big bulb in autumn and waiting for it to work its magic. With Fritillaria persica 'XXL', expect extra strong stems, impressive height and plenty of flower power!

Fritillaria persica looks so impressive, yet they’re really easy to grow. Whether you’re new to gardening or a seasoned horticulturist, you can easily create a beautiful, professional looking planting scheme. Flowering in April, fritillaries are fantastic partners with tulips. Try this variety with tall orange tulips to make an eye-popping contrast, or tulips in pastel shades for a softer look.
