I defy anybody not to be captivated by snake’s head fritillaries. Those nodding chequered flowers and viper’s tongue leaves are cuter than kittens and more inspiring than Bach (mostly). For the best effect, plant lots of them in long grass or on the margins of shrubberies. If you only have a small garden, then plant a big potful that you can see from the kitchen.
Plant bulbs in autumn. Happy in a damp clay soil and grow well in water meadows. Propagate from seed in autumn. HxS 30cm x 10cm
