1. Fritillary
(Fritillaria meleagris L.)

1. Fritillary

This uncommon plant, which belongs to the lily family, grows in damp meadows. It has a small bulb from which arises a slender stem bearing a few narrow leaves and a single drooping flower, similar in Shape to that of the tulip. As a rule the flower is prettily chequered with purple and pink, but it may be pure white. Very rarely two flowers grow upon one stem. The fritillary comes into bloom in April.
