Fritillaria Meleagris (Snakeshead Lily)

I’ve never known a plant have so many common names, but Fritillaria Meleagris, most often called Snakeshead Lily, is sometimes referred to as guinea-hen flower, chess flower, frog-cup, chequered daffodil and chequered lily. Whatever you call it, this ever popular, delicate, bell-shaped fritillary, in mixed mauves, whites and purples, will naturalise in moist grass meadows and the sight of it delights us every spring.
