Why the Fritillaria Flower?

Elegant and enchanting, their unique checkered patterns and nodding habits, have been catching the eye for thousands of years. These small but beautiful plants have inspired myths and symbolism in many different cultures around the world from remembrance, sorrow, and loss.
