Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

An unusual Fritillary producing nodding, bell-shaped yellow flowers, lightly chequered with maroon, above grey-green strap-shaped leaves. Coming into flower in mid to late spring, Fritillaria 'Golden Flag' makes a cheerful, dainty addition to the front of free-draining borders, patio containers or grown in alpine troughs. Although fully hardy, this Fritillary will need protection from excessive winter wet. Bulb size 5/6. Height: 10cm (4"). Spread: 5cm (2").

Flowering Months
When growing yellow fritillaries, it is essential to allow their foliage to die back naturally as this will feed the bulb for the following year. During their dormant period the soil should be kept fairly dry to prevent the bulbs from rotting. If grown under cover, begin watering sparingly as the Fritillary bulbs start back into active growth.
Fritillaria 'Golden Flag' thrives in fertile, well drained soil in full sun. The small bulbs do not tolerate wet soils during their dormant period. In wet areas or on heavy soils, they are best grown in a cool greenhouse, or container to ensure that such conditions can be provided. If growing Fritillary in containers, use soil-based compost such as John Innes No.2 with added grit for drainage. Plant bulbs at a depth of 10cm (4") and 5cm (2") apart. Fritillary bulbs are fragile so always handle them with care. Planting them on their sides will help to avoid water collecting in their hollow crowns and prevent the bulbs from rotting.
