Fritillaria michailovskyi is a species of flowering plant in the lily family, native to mountainous areas of northeastern Turkey. It is a bulbous perennial growing to 10–20 cm (4–8 in) tall, with narrow strap-shaped leaves and nodding umbels of distinctive, pendent, bell-shaped maroon flowers with yellow tips in spring.[2][3][4]

In cultivation, it requires very well-drained conditions, as it does not tolerate winter wet.[5]
