Fritillaria imperialis 'Red'

Exotic and stately, spring flowering crown imperials enhance any border.

Crown imperials are large, impressive plants, growing to an eventual height of 1.5m. With strong, sturdy stems, they hold the weight of the flowers without the need for plant supports.

The rich colour and pointed foliage of Fritillaria imperialis gives a tropical look. For maximum impact, plant them in large groups among shrubs or in mixed herbaceous borders.

Height: 1 - 1.5m, Spread: 45cm, Flowering period: April-May, Position: full sun

Growing Info Tab

Crown Imperial bulbs are particularly fragile and should be handled carefully. Plant them in autumn in a fertile, free draining soil in full sun. The bulbs are particularly susceptible to rotting in wet soils so add plenty of grit and a little well rotted manure or compost prior to planting. Plant Fritillaria imperialis bulbs at a depth of 12cm (5") and 20cm (10") apart. Water well to settle the soil.

More Info Tab

After flowering allow the foliage to die back naturally. When leaves and stems have yellowed, cut them back to ground level.
