Plant Overview

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.

Height: 25cm

Common name: Fox's Grape Fritillary

Comes in a 7x9cm pot.

All our plants are supplied in 9cm pots unless otherwise specified. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants in bigger pots planted at the same time. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant.
The majority of our plants are grown outdoors. This means that they follow their natural growth patterns and are ready to plant at any time of the year. If you order the plants in winter, they are likely to be dormant and died back to ground level, ready to shoot again in spring - just like the herbaceous perennials in your own garden. Very occasionally, in winter, we may indicate on the packing slip that a plant needs to be hardened off before planting out. This will be because it has just come out of a polytunnel. If you have any questions about our plants or growing methods, please feel free to drop us an email.
We grow most of what we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside. Our prices include VAT at 20%.
