Description

Fritillaria raddeana is one of the earliest of the tall fritillaria’s to flower, Fritillaria raddeana has magnificent pale yellowish green flowers which appear in March/April on flower stems 60-80cm tall. The flower stems of the taller fritillarias are also quite a feature of these varieties. They prefer the sunny areas of the garden that do not dry out in the growing season. Leave to naturalise for many years and will work really when planted with sultry coloured tulips or alternatively the taller alliums and eremurus. An excellent choice for the garden as it is really outstanding. Fritillarias are quite easy to grow and will naturalise extremely well.

Cultivation Instructions

Before planting cultivate the soil to a depth of 30cm and ensure soils are well drained and do not dry out in the summer.  Plant in well-drained, humus rich solid and they can be left undisturbed for a number of years.  Add some grit or organic matter to the soil to help aid drainage.

Care tips:

Semi shaded areas of the garden ideally not in direct sunlight. They are ideal for planting amongst herbaceous plants or low shrubs. Once they have finished flowering allow the stems to die back and remove debris. In general plant the bulbs twice their height deep.

Feed regularly during the growing season with high potash and phosphate foods such as  bone meal or tomato food.
