Flower Focus :: Fritillaria

I have a flower crush and it’s on the Fritillaria. Such fascinating flowers, one that I never had the opportunity to see as a cut flower while living in Denver. Now that I’m back in Northern California I see this cool flower quite often!
What I want to know is if I can grow this flower in Zone 9 – so far I have not found a plant to place in the garden. The hunt continues…

As a cut flower it is quite fascinating, below the show & tell of Fritillaria varieties you’ll be treated to a selection of beautiful arrangements utilizing this beauty!

  1. I’m just south of you in Northern Sonoma County, and I see both scarlet fritillary and checkered fritillary as wildflowers blooming when I hike nearby. So I’m sure a cultivated fritillaria would do just fine.

  2. Love Fritilaria but we’ve had clients make us remove it because of the strong smell!
