A lovely early flowering plant with grape-like flower heads of purple and brown and yellow edges. Not often offered by nurseries.
These can be planted in containers, in the lawn or in borders and they will gradually naturalise if allowed. Plant in full sun in any soil type.
Flowers in March and April and can be cut for the vase. Plants die back underground in early summer and shoot again in late winter.
Common name: Fox's Grape Fritillary
Comes in a 7x9cm pot.
