Fritillaria, (commonly known as Nodding Flowers), are delicate little plants that originate from Turkey, Iran and Iraq and have bell shaped flowers at the top of their short stems.
Fritillaria is only available as a cut flower for about three or four months a year, in the Spring. It also has an unpleasant scent that some would describe as wet fur!
Although not a popular fresh cut flower, it is available on the wholesale flower markets and is sold in wraps of 50 stems. The stem length of fritillaria is never taller than 30cm. Fritillaria look superb when included in spring wedding flowers.

To get the best from your wholesale cut fritillaria please read the care instructions below carefully:
- Cut the stems at a 45 degree angle with a sharp knife.
- Fill sterilised buckets with cold luke warm and add flower food.
- Place the fritillaria in the buckets - up to their necks in water.
