Fritillaria ophioglossifolia Freyn & Sint.

Fritillaria collina

See a collection of rare species of plants of Georgia here:



The Fritillaria Group of the Alpine Garden Society in England thinks of the right name of the above species the following:

"According to the revised classification by Martyn Rix published in January
2001, fritillaria ophioglossifolia (Freyn & Sint) is no longer an accepted
name! The accepted name for what once were called fritillaria
ophiglossifolia is now fritillaria crassifolia!

Also, according to revised classification by Martyn Rix, fritillaria lutea
(M.Beib non Miller) is now reclassified as fritillaria collina.."
