After flowering and complete drying of the leaves, the stems should be cut off just above the ground. Mark the location of the bulbs to avoid any damage when digging or raking. This plant has a 3 week bloom period beginning in late spring. Fritillaria are used in borders, containers, and as a specimen plant. They are deer, rabbit, and squirrel resistant. The odor scares away mice, moles and other rodents.
