Great Fritillaries of the woodland gardens, mingling with native bluebells , A Downers Grove shade garden teeming with shade plants, native species, and bulbs , designed by Ed Max, Max’s Greener Places
Great Fritillaries are not a common spring bulb for the perennial gardens and are rarely seen in our area. (CLICK on PIC)
Plant in fall, in deep loamy soils, full or part sun, and that’s it!
They stand high above the surrounding native bluebells seen here, and the bees love them!
Seen here in Max’s woodland gardens in West Chicago.
