Fritillaria aurea x pinardii
Fritillaria aurea x pinardii in the wild
During a field trip to Turkey, friends from my local AGS group were taken to a couple of sites where F. aurea and F. pinardii were growing together. Hybrids between the two species were also present and showed a range of colours and forms, although the flower shape was predominantly that of F. aurea. They have kindly shared the following images - taken in the Aladağlar National Park near Yahyali.
