Description – A beautiful hardy bulb with white pendant 1½in (4cm) blooms heavily chequered with pink, plum or purple. Snakes’s Head Fritillary can be grown in grass and often self seeds to make delightful colonies of nodding bells.

Place outside in a shady spot, open to the weather.

Growing – Transplant carefully when the bulbs are dormant and grow on for 2-3 seasons before planting out in full sun and well drained soil 1-15cm (4-6in) apart.

Aftercare – They can grow in grass if it isn’t cut until the leaves die down.
