I recently posted a photo of Fritillaria latifolia, grown from seed, on the 
wiki and had a question about its identity because my plant has glaucous 
leaves rather than the glossy green leaves mentioned in the British 
literature. I thought it might be a hybrid with F. tubiformis from Europe. 
However, Janis Ruksans's new catalog arrived here today, and it has a photo 
of a wild form from the Caucasus, F. latifolia, with distinctly glaucous 
leaves, so I won't change my label just yet. I have edited the note on the 
wiki to reflect this information.
