‘Fritillaria Raddeana Early Fantasy’ is a bulbous perennial boasting a beautiful display of bright peachy-orange, pendant, bell-shaped flowers topped by a crown of small leaves and rising at the end of an upright stem bearing lance-shaped, glossy leaves.
Grows up to 40-44 in. tall
Blooming occurs in mid to late spring and lasts for 2-3 weeks.
Specimens that receive what they need often continue to flower year after year in the same location.
Plant in fall in a full sun or partial shade area (some shade is particularly important in warmer climate zones) with moderately fertile, sandy and moist but well-drained soil for best results. The soil must drain quickly and thoroughly; heavy soil will definitely need the addition of extra sand. Water only once every 1-2 weeks and keep the soil dry for a few days before watering again. This will prevent the bulbs from rotting.
Plant in clusters for large impact.
Deer and rabbit resistant
The flowers have a distinctive musk-like odor and contain large drops of nectar.
