I know these fritillaries thrive in water meadows but the bulk of mine have been under water since December. Will they cope?

I was wondering that today as I paddled where they are, and this is their first year as well

They should be fine - there are meadows where they grow wild close to where I grew up - they were sometimes flooded for weeks and weeks at this time of year.

That's good. Thank you Dove. This is the first time they've been flooded to years and never for as long.
