botrytis on Fritillaria

Virtually all of my tulips were infected with botrytis this year, some forms
more so than others. Both the leaves and the flowers were damaged, in some
cases seriously. The flowers in general were disfigured enough to make them
useless for photography. 

Now that the tulip season is over here, in retrospect I realize that the
Fritillaria growing right next to the tulips did not show signs of botrytis.

Are Fritillaria known to be botrytis resistant? Or do the symptoms of
botrytis infection manifest themselves differently in frits?

Montgomery County, Maryland, USA, USDA, zone 7, where the last few days have
been cold enough to pass for early April. I saw Lilium pumilum blooming in
an Alexandria, Virginia garden earlier this week, and L. grayi here is in
advanced bud.
