    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)

    When to plant Fritillaria bulbs?

    Plant Fritillaria in early to mid-fall. Plant Fritillaria bulbs shortly after receiving them, as they prefer to be in the ground and not away from the soil for too long.

    How to plant Fritillaria bulbs?

    Fritillaria have odd-shaped bulbs, and it is often difficult to tell which end faces up. They also often have a hollow part of the bulb. To protect water from gathering in the hollow part of the bulb lay the bulb on its side when planting. Plant large fritillaria also known as Crown Imperial 6-8โ€ deep. Small Fritillaria such as Mixed Checked Fritillaria should be planted 2-3โ€ deep. After placing the bulbs in the ground at the proper planting depth cover the bulbs with soil. A light layer of mulch can be added as well.

    Where to plant Fritillaria bulbs?

    Plant Fritillaria in a soil that has good drainage. The planting area must have soil that is loose, and water does not gather, amend with organic matter prior to planting. Fritillaria grow best in filtered sun.

    What are good companion plants Fritillaria?

    Fritillaria bloom in mid-summer, they look lovely when planted with Daffodils, Tulips, Grape Hyacinths and Fragrant Hyacinths.

    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 โ€” 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.
