Red Crown Imperial
Fritillaria imperialis 'Rubra'
This is a very unusual bulb. Called crown imperial, it rises up 3-4' in the April garden and has dangling flowers of orange-red. This bulb is vole and deer proof. It has a hollow center so you must plant it at a 45 degree angle with the hollow top facing downward so it won't fill with water! Once you know this helpful hint, you will have these returning for you year after year. Easy to grow in moist, well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade.
Bulbs are scheduled to arrive in early September. At checkout, please choose a pickup day after Tuesday, September 13th. Pickup days are easily changed and we are very flexible, as long as you come in for pickup after Sept 13th during our retail hours of Wed-Sat 10-5, Sundays 10-4.
Unfortunately, the possibility of crop failure does exist, and if the bulb(s) you ordered are not available, we will alert you with an email, and issue you a refund through the website.
