Fritillaria - persica
Description:
Fritillaria persica (Persian Lily) is an unusual eye-catcher wherever it's grown! The tall flower stems each carry up to 25 deep purple bells - they can reach up to 1m tall. Once established, you can enjoy your Persian lilies for a long time to come because they naturalise themselves easily. The lovely long stems make a great addition to any bouquet and look great in a vase on the table too. Our advice? Order more than one pack of bulbs right now because this unusual bulb grows out to look its best when planted in groups among all your other plants in the border! It will then weave its own way amongst everything, tying all your border together into one lovely picture.

Planting+
Persian Lily bulbs (Fritillaria persica) should be planted as soon as possible upon receipt in the garden, or into pots and planters. Store frost-free until planting! Potted bulbs are more than likely to be frost sensitive.
Plant these bulbs in a hole 3 times deeper than the size of the bulb - so a 2 cm bulb goes in a 6 cm hole. Plant Fritillaria persica bulbs 3 cm apart. Fork the soil well loose and plant the bulbs roots down. Fill the hole and water generously. Fritillaria persica will thrive in a fertile, well drained soil in your garden in full sun or part shade.
Care+
Persian Lily bulbs (Fritillaria persica) can stay in the same spot for years on end. The bulbs will thrive in drier soil with good drainage. You could plant them in the border or in a rockery and allow them to naturalise. Planted in groups scattered over the whole border, they will eventually weave through the entire bed. Such a lovely thing to see.
Cut off the overblown flower stems after flowering and all the energy collected by the foliage will go into the bulb for the following year.
if you grow these bulbs in a pot, keep it pretty dry once all foliage has died back. Pot up again in spring using fresh potting compost and water now and then.
