Greenish white mini-bell florets sit a top strong stems with greenish-grey leaves on this unique and highly sought after Fritillaria. The bulb size of the Ivory Bells Fritillaria are a whopping 30+ cm!! Best impact will be made when planted in clusters of 3-5. Good choice for back of the border, green flowering plant, deer, rabbit and squirrel resistance, and attracting butterflies. Plant in well-drained soil, Fritillaria do not like wet feet due to excess moisture or poor draining soils. Please note: this bulb should be planted on it's side in very well drained soil to avoid rotting.

  • Fritillaria require a full sun to partial shade location.
  • Well-drained soil is critical to health and growth of frtillaria bulbs; they are very susceptible to rotting in soils that do not drain well.
  • Amend the planting area with top soil or plant starter mix. The addition of organic matter such as compost, manure or peat is also necessary when amending your soil.
  • To help improve your soil structure, and make nutrients more readily available to the fritillaria bulbs add Kelp Meal when amending your soil.
  • Fritillaria bulbs have a hollow center from the previous year’s stem. This hollow center can easily collect water and lead to the bulb rotting over winter. To help prevent rotting from happening, plant the fritillaria bulb slightly on its side, with the roots facing the earth.
  • After amending your soil, plant your fritillaria bulbs 6” deep
  • Space your fritillaria 8-12” apart. Planting in groups of 3 or more will give the best appearance.
  • Water the planting area immediately after planting to eliminate air pockets. Fritillaria are very sensitive to rotting, any additional water in fall or winter is not suggested.
  • Apply a thick 2-3” layer of organic mulch to the planting area in mid to late fall.
