Product Description

Also known as 'Fox's grape fritillary', Fritillaria uva-vulpis is a bulbous perennial with lance-shaped leaves and sprays of up to 7 hanging, bell-shaped flowers.

The blooms are dark purple-brown with yellow inside and often bright-yellow tipping. Each delicate flower is highlighted with fine veining and contrasts delightfully with its glaucous, grassy leaves.

One of the more robust fritillaries, they have been found growing wild – testament to their tolerance of the UK climate and proof that they will naturalise when happy.

Perfect for borders, patio pots and container displays, they can be grown in any semi-shaded part of your garden, decking or balcony.

Supplied as a pack of 40 bulbs ready for immediate planting.

Care Guide

Planting Advice for Fritillaria uva-vuplis

  • Needs a moderately fertile, very well-drained soil and is intolerant of wet when dormant. Handle the fragile bulbs carefully and plant at four times their own depth.
  • Plant in a sunny position where they can get some shade during the hottest part of the day – they are ideal for gravel gardens.

Aftercare Advice for Fritillaria uva-vuplis:

  • If growing in a pot, put a layer of gravel at the bottom of the pot to help keep the compost draining freely.
  • Add a handful of coarse sand or grit to the potting compost and then place the bulbs in a planting hole 3 times as deep as the height of the bulbs.
  • To protect the bulbs against frost, place the pot in a frost-free area or cover it with bubble wrap over winter.
  • Water during dry periods.

Trimming advice for fritillaries:

  • Allow the stem to turn brown before cutting off close to the soil.
