Native to Southern Turkey, Fritillaria was first introduced into Austria in 1576 and by 1597 was being cultivated in Britain. Sometime during the 1600's, the plant made its way to the United States. Thomas Jefferson was evidently fascinated with the plant, but had a difficult time getting it started. His diaries indicated that he placed 5 orders for bulbs before he was successful. The roots he finally received thrived so well that he divided them and placed them throughout the property. Fritillarias will prosper for years in well drained, rich soil and full sun. They are deer and rodent resistant. The bulbs are quite perishable so handle with care and PLANT IMMEDIATELY UPON RECEIPT. Plant smaller bulbs 5-6" deep and 5'6" apart. Plant larger bulbs 6-7" deep and 8-10" apart.
