Snakeshead fritillary is a member of the lily family. It has a beautiful nodding head with a chequered pink and white pattern. In nature the Snakeshead fritillary can be in meadows which flood every winter. It will also grow happily in ordinary garden soil,although take care that the corms are not attacked by mice! Preferring a damp soil it is ideal planted in grassland. Alternatively it looks amazing planted in a large pot full of Spring bulbs to bring an interesting focus to the garden in the Spring.
Other features:
The name comes from the shape of the flower head just before it opens as it can look similar  to a viper’s head.

Our pots have 3 corms per pot
