Just love the simple form of the fox's grape.

    That is nice, I had to look it up, an interesting common name I didn't know.
    Seeing them against your primroses or primulas there, they are taller than I imagined they would be.
    Do they seed around like the snakes heads or are they more difficult?
    I had seen them but not got around to properly checking them out to see if they would suit our conditions here.

    Got to say I still much prefer the common snakeshead fritillary to any of the others, though I see Fritillaria verticillata at Rosemoor the other day and did quite like that.

    Rubytoo I had never seen them before, apparently they are the easiest fritillary to grow and increase each year, we shall see !
