This is an absolute stunner! A dark selection of Fritillaria affinis with very dark purple, almost black flowers with delicate, ruffled, golden-yellow edges to the petals. Flowers are held on sturdy stems above blue-green foliage.
Prefers a well-drained soil in partial shade.
Height: 8 - 12 inches / 20 - 30cm
One of my favourite fritillarias. The flowers are so distinctive and the colour seems such an unreal sight that I always have to tell myself that it's natural. I began growing these beauties in a terracotta pot as I couldn't bear the thought of losing them in the sprawl of the garden or alpine bed. They have rewarded me by forming good sized clumps of bulbs. To me, their return each spring is like finding that your favourite chocolate has been left in the box!
