Even well versed gardeners tend to be unfamiliar with this tall fritillaria, a cultivar that originates in southern Turkey, Cyprus and Syria. We believe persica plum bells should be more widely grown as it offers a tall form that is excellent placed at the back of the garden or along fences, and develops dozens of beautifully shaped plum to mahogany purple flowers encircling each stalk. The flower stalks are long lived, looking wonderful for several weeks. The foliage is attractive too, with a tendency to take on a bluish cast. Resistant to rodents and deer. Persica is endangered in the wild but be assured that all our bulbs are nursery grown.
