Fritillaria Checkered Lily Meleagris, White

Similar to the more common purple and white checkered lily, this unusual flower is a study subtlety. The checkered pattern is white on white, like that found on a fine china. Excellent for arrangements where the delicate pattern can be appreciated. This fritillaria has slender, silvery-green foliage that doesn't require much room and the nodding, bell-shaped, checkered flowers weave well between fuller spring perennials. Deer and rodent resistant. These bulbs are nursery propagated, not collected from the wild.
