SNAKES HEAD FRITILLARY and 1 week old Frogspawn

Snake’s head fritillaries always excite attention wherever they are seen. None of the other lovely members of the fritillaria genus can match this native wildflower for the bizarre and unmistakable colouring of its bell-shaped flowers. They are various shades of purple, always with a unmistakable and pronounced chequered pattern of dark purple and creamy white. The flowers always dangle earthwards, one per plant..

Our frogspawn is now 1 week old, The black embryos are now more rectangular shaped than circular.
