The plant's name 'fritillaria' comes from the latin 'fritillus', meaning Dice-box. This presumably refers to the unmistakable chequered/dotted pattern of the flower. This plant was often harvested from meadows in the United Kingdom to be sold for decoration at 16th & 17th Century markets. It is the official flower of the Uppland region of Sweden, where it grows in large quantities every spring.
