This next one is Fritillaria avromanica. I am going to have to think about how I grow this because like three others I got at the same time, as Sp nova , all have a tendency to flower at gravel level; very irritating. The next two pictures are of Fritillaria sibthorpiana subsp enginii. Which I think I should be calling Fritillaria enginii as it has been lifted to species level now. One Fritillaria latifolia var nobilis has come into flower earlier than I would normally expect.

The one group that do not seem to have been affected is the rhinopetalum. Three different gibbosas pictured below followed by a couple of stenanthera.

The temperature here has definitely given me more of a headache than normal in my unheated greenhouse this year. I have not been able to keep my moisture levels where I would like them in my pots. Why? - because we have had more cold nights (-6c) this year for which I would want low moisture levels and to add insult to injury they are then followed by +8c when I would want more moisture in the pots. So some plants have suffered like this Fritillaria crassifolia subsp hakkarensis (pictured below) which normally looks a lot better than this.

The Fritillaria japonica flowers reliably every year but unfortunately it doesn't make offspring.

Re Fritillaria striata
I was given some seed at the end of 2019. It germinated in January but I did not notice when it went dormant. It began to regrow in November which surprised me. When should it go dormant this year? Any advice on growing this species would be gratefully received.
Thank you

These are from the NARGS seed ex, packet labeled F. carica(Haha!)  Could it be a slip of the mind and they are F. caucasica?
-- it seems pretty textbook to me....

Fritillaria don't do well with me and I've been picking lily beetles off a few unhappy looking plants. Just one F. imperialis 'William Rex' in flower;

Nice Frits Claire!

Here are my pyrenaicas, grown from seed. Not a show quality pot but I love the variability. I sowed a lot of seed from these last year which will hopefully be enough to establish a nice population in the garden.
