Native to southern Turkey, Fritillaria persica has elegant, tall stems of sumptuous, dark plum-coloured flowers. It’s unusually tall for a spring-flowering bulb and therefore makes a grand statement among other tall-flowering blooms such as tulips and white narcissi. Fritillaria persica ‘Twin Towers Tribute’ flowers more reliably than the species, and bears two flower spikes per bulb, rather than one.
