As a companion to the article by Jane McGary on Fritillaria in West Coast gardens, featured in the April 2012 issue of Pacific Horticulture, we offer the following list of mail order sources of species and cultivars of fritillaries. As noted in her article, fritillaries are best grown from seed. McGary adds: “Overseas suppliers of bulbs and seed advertise regularly in the journals of the rock and alpine garden societies listed below. Joining these groups brings both the journals and an opportunity to order from their seed exchanges, which annually offer thousands of species, including dozens of Fritillaria, at minimal cost.”

Please be sure to mention Pacific Horticulture when contacting any of these vendors.
