    Ship Season: Fall

    The Crown Imperial is a stately plant which likes to catch all attention and therefore should be planted in between perennials which flower later in the season. Rubra Maxima has very large flame-orange flowers with purple veins and a musky scent (that keeps rabbits and deer away). It is very nice in modern gardens. (plant bulb on its side)

    I'm obsessed

    I was hesitant to order crown imperials because I don't really see anyone growing them in my area and I wondered if maybe the wet Seattle winters were too much for them (they're prone to rot). But I took a chance and planted them on their sides in an spot that gets a little rain cover from a cedar tree — and I'm so glad I did! These were among the first bulbs to emerge in early spring and looked like wild white and yellow hands reaching from the earth. In a few weeks they were standing tall and now in early April the flower buds are visible and waiting to bloom. I check every day in anticipation! I ordered three orange and three red, and all 6 bulbs came up. Everyone who has stopped by my house has asked about these unique plants. I'm going to need to order more of these next year, they're fabulous.
