Planting+
As soon as possible after receiving the Fritillaria Imperialis bulbs they can be planted in the garden, a flower pot or in a planter. If not they must be kept in a frost-free area. Bulbs planted in a flower pot are not usually frost resistant. Plant the large bulbs about 15 to 25 cm deep which is about three times as deep as the bulb. For example a bulb of 5 cm should be planted in a 15 cm deep hole. The planting distance is about 30 cm. Loosen the soil well and plant the bulbs with the point facing upwards. Refill the planting hole and avoid walking over the soil. Plant the Fritillaria imperialis bulbs one by one with a trowel or a special bulb planter. For larger groups make a wider hole and plant more bulbs in it.
Care+
The flowers of Fritillaria imperialis ‘Red Crown’ are at their best in the first year. That’s why we recommend each year adding new and extra bulbs to make your borders and pots even more colourful. Fritillaria imperialis ‘Red Crown’ are moisture-loving plants by nature and grow best in fertile, well-drained soil in an area in full sun. Even when the foliage looks untidy it is best left to die down naturally and this will direct the energy back into the bulbs for the following year. Water more frequently during dry periods. Protect the bulbs from severe frost by covering the ground with a layer of leaves or straw.
Specifics+
Fritillaria Imperialis ‘Red Crown’ is a majestic spring bloomer with orange-red flowers. There are actually two coronets at the top of the stems. A coronet with downward facing flowers and above that one, a coronet of thin narrow leaves. Together they form an excellent crown. Also the stems have coronet-shaped leaves at the bottom. The 'Red Crown' Imperial bulbs spread a strong scent that keeps moles and voles at a safe distance. This handsome bulbous plant has been in gardens since 1867.
