Found this flower growing in a shady, wet area near my house. Petals hang downward, vivid purple in color and has a yellow center.

    You must have a ‘mature’ landscape to have a Chequered Lily (Fritillaria meleagris). Try to leave the foliage alone until it dies down naturally. That will help it bloom next spring.

    Thanks so much! Will guard the plant and it has several “friends”.
