Fritillaria imperialis Rubra Maxima

Fritillaria imperialis Rubra Maxima - Crown Imperial

A stunning tall growing and hardy Fritillaria. Large, bell-shaped rusty orange-red flowers with dark veining appear on erect stems with the characteristic tuft of leaves on the top. Great at the back of mixed bulb planting or grow in large pots with some support for the tall stems if necessary. Warning - the bulbs tend to smell a bit funky.
