Yes these are the hybrids you remember reading about. The Rascals series was
created by crossbreeding Fritillaria imperialis with F. eduardii var.
inodora and/or F. raddeana. The Fantasy series has similar ancestry. The
breeding work has been done by Willem Wietsma of VOF de Keizerskroon nursery
in the Netherlands, who has been breeding and selecting Fritillaria
cultivars since 1978.
