About Persica - Fritillaria Bulbs

Fritillaria imperialis

Seed Type Bulb

A unique and whimsical garden addition, Persica Fritillaria, commonly known as Persian lily, is a perennial that does best in zones 3 to 7. Purple bell-shaped blooms dangle from delicate stems and instantly give that cottage look to any planting. For the most dramatic effect, plant in clusters and expect your Persian lilies to grow three to four feet high.
