Around the Pond (Fritillaria meleagris (Snake's head fritillary))

I'm trying to keep the colours of the Fritillaries separate.

Is Fritillary the only flower with square patterns or are there others? I don't think mine are going to appear this year so I will enjoy yours instead!

STERA, can't think of any other plant with similarly patterned flowers. Hope yours appear. I take seed as they diminish, because the get dug up by mistake.
