This mixture of windflowers and fritillaries provides a 'Fairy Tale' dreamland of purple, blue and yellow where you can let your hair down like Repunzel, and rest as peacefully as Snow White and Sleeping Beauty!

The petite, but radiant blues of the Grecian 'Blue Shades' windflowers are excellent underplanting for the showy fritillaries. The daisy-shaped windflowers with their flower heads, as large as 2 inches in diameter, add another dash of yellow to a colorful, low-maintenance combination.

The suspended, bell-shaped blooms of the Michael's Flower fritillaries (Fritillaria michailovskyi), reddish-purple with yellow edges, loom over the windflowers as if shining light on the entire display. These blooms reach 1 ¼ inches wide, adding distinctive color and form to the pairing.

An Award of Golden Merit recipient, 'Blue Shades' grows from 4 to 6 inches in height, preferring sun and partial shade. The windflower makes its best impression in large groups. Michael's Flower thrives in similar conditions, with each 12-inch-long stem carrying up to 5 blossoms. Like 'Blue Shades,' the fritillary performs best when planted in groups.

The blooms of the windflowers and fritillaries, with their deep blues and purples with yellow accents, form a spectacular color combination of complementary spring flowers.
