'DID YOU KNOW THAT' the Snake's Head Fritillary is an Eurasian species of flowering plant in the lily family?  The flower has a chequered pattern in shades of purple, or is sometimes pure white. It flowers from March to May and grows between 15–40 cm (6–16 in) in height. It is native to Europe and western Asia, but in many places it is an endangered species that is rarely found in the wild, but is commonly grown in gardens.  (Emkay Image reference: - FPFL1)
