FRITILLARIA

FRITILLARIA

LILIACEAE

 

Fritillary is a genus of bulbous plants that produce hanging bell flowers, usually in spring. These often have chequered markings on a green, brown, yellow, white, purple or red background. The bulbs are used in Chinese medicine, but are poisonous if eaten.

There are about 120 species, usually growing on rocky hills or in meadowland, across western Europe and Siberia, in central and eastern Asia and in North America.

 

Most are best in full sun, with humus-rich, but free-draining soil. Some species are ideal for naturalising in grass.
