Fritillaria eastwoodiae Care

Like many species F.eastwoodiae likes a very dry dormant period in summer.

A sunny position and a well drained soil are essential.

Planting

Like most bulbs they look great in clumps. We like 7 – 10 in a group, and unevenly spaced for a more ‘natural’ look.

They grow equally well in the rock garden and in a well drained container in full sun to part shade.
