The scoop on Fritillaria White Checkered Lily

Ever seen a checkered flower? Look closely. These white bell-shaped blooms have an oh-so-subtle white and ivory checkerboard pattern across each petal.

Why Grow Fritillaria?

  • Fritillarias are a large and varied family native to many parts of Europe and Central to Western Asia
  • Most fritillaria flower in the spring or early summer
  • Deer, rabbits and rodents find fritillaria distasteful
  • Fritillaria flowers have been chosen as emblems and coats of arms for regions in the UK, Sweden, Italy, Japan and Croatia
  • Fritillaria bulbs do best with as little time as possible out of the ground; our shipping window on these is short (don't delay!)

Consider planting these checkered lilies with their wine and white siblings for a striking combination.
