One of the benefits of having a plant nursery is that you can indulge your passions! One of which is this beauty, and the Fritillaria that really sparked my interest in this group of enchanting plants.
Fritillari raddeana is a rare Central Asian native, has a growing habit similar to that of F. Crown imperialis, but is a bit more delicate in appearance. It has a cluster of up to ten pendant, bell-shaped, pale greenish-yellow flowers.
It flowers in April and thrives in well drained fertile soil in full sun or dappled shade.
