From  Bob Wallis

"I am just packing the latest Fritillaria Group journal to send it out to the members of the Group and will take them to the post office today. I have some spare ones so they can be sent to anyone joining the Group in the near future. There are articles on growing Fritillaries in the garden, on the Rhinopetalums and on how to grow Fritillaria stenanthera to Medal-winning standard and lots of fabulous pictures."

Judith Lundberg-Felten shared a link to the group: Fritillaria Group.

"I had the greatest pleasure to have Laurence Hill as my podcast guest. We talked about botanical photography of fritillaries and how and why he established the Fritillaria icones website. Lots of passion for fritillaries, observations of the life of bulbous plants and practical tips for botanical photography. Enjoy listening via the link, spotify, apple, google podcast.... There will be a 2nd part of my interview with Laurence coming out next week. "

In IRG 140 August 2021, a new fritillary species from the Fergana Valley, southern Kyrgyzstan,  Fritillaria rugillosa (subgen. Rhinopetalum; Liliaceae) is described by Alexander Naumenko and Dimitri Zubov.

Second article  is Patagonian Verbenas - Junellia ( part 1) by Martin Sheader, a marine biologist from Southampton, who is known for a  great interest in all plants.   Dr Sheader has travelled extensively in this part of South America and his book ‘Flowers of the Patagonian Mountains’ is the most comprehensive photographic guide yet published to the area’s diverse and fascinating flora.

Kurt Vickery - from Facebook:

Fritillaria rugillosa (Rhinopetalum) Earlier in the year I posted pictures of a Fritillary that at the time was known as aff gibbosa sp nova ( was also in my seed list as this and so please adjust your labels) It has now been described by my friends Alexander Naumenko (discoverer) and Dima Zubov as F.rugillosa - Description can be found on the excellent 'International rock garden on-line magazine' via the SRGC website. Sincere thanks to Alexander for the material that has already allowed me to distribute seed around the world

So sorry to hear of the death of Pat Huff, longterm editor of the Friit Group magazine - described by Laurence Hill as  "A quite dedicated lady who corralled writers, photographers and botanical artists to contribute to 30 journals for The Fritillaria Group. Many are freely available on the website http://www.fritillaria.org.uk/journal.html"



Our condolences to her family and friends.
