We're always looking to make gardens bolder and brighter. However a more subtle tone, like one Green Dreams' blooms strike, can fill in around your border focal points without stealing the show, inviting visitors to pause for a closer look. The soft colors and whimsical flower form will tempt you to daydream. These large flowers, painted in chartreuse and plum, hang from the stems like a chorus of bells. They entice butterflies to dance through your garden. Green Dreams was a happy surprise that the breeder Verschoor found growing in his field. It was a mutation from a purple-flowered Fritillaria, that went through years and years of development. It's an excellent garden performer and it perennializes reliably. Deer tend not to bother this variety. Fritillaria persica 'Green Dreams'
