We grew these with ease and to great proportions 30 years ago on the limestone brash at Bradford on Avon. That indicated their surprising preference for good light, and good drainage. Our heavier soils here seem to suit them less well, but they are impressive all the same with bell shaped flowers like grapes with a similar bloom.
Fritillaria persica bulbs should be planted 8" (20cm) deep in rich soil, which has had fertiliser added.They would benefit from an annual feed of potash rich fertiliser. Need a dry rest in the summer.
Flowers April / May
Height 24-30" (60-75cm)
