The pretty little Fritillaria liliacea, one of the smaller growing Frits, originally from California and are in fact endemic to the area. With the common name of 'The Fragrant Fritillary' , we would call any fragrance very slight.
A small growing delight with lovely waxy, white to yellow dainty nodding star shaped open flowers, tinged with a green throat this is another Fritillaria bulb that is a must for collectors around the world.
In danger in its natural environment although bulbs and seed are readily available for cultivation.
Like most other species, Fritillaria liliacea requires a well drained position to avoid bulb rot, and can be successfully grown in a container or pot. This is a species that grows well in full sun.
