Fritillaria uva-vulpis

A native of Turkey, Iraq and Iran. The bells are downfacing so they are not showy but a small interesting plant nonetheless.

Hi Deemom, Don't get too carried away ;) If I remember correctly there was a variety that was more showy but this makes a nice quite statement. Unfortunately we placed the bulbs near some azaleas so it doesn't look very nice with the small busy leaves as backdrop.
