Very similar to F. 'Rubra Maxima' with regal, slightly burnt orange-red 3 inch bells cluster atop dark 3-4 foot stems. The bonus on 'Argenteovariegata' is the variegated foliage: green edged with creamy yellow!

One of the most impressive hardy bulbs a gardener can be pleased to grow and deer resistant. Large, exotic flowers bloom in our early spring only because it is native to the higher elevation meadows of the Himalayas. (Fritillarias deter moles, not that you needed another reason to grow them.) 

Minimum temperature: -20° F
