This Orange Fritillaria is a Crown Imperial that truly delivers! Its stately habit and stunning orange petals make it a must-have for your garden! The tall stems carry a ring of bell-shaped flowers which hang upside down for the very top, giving it a very unique look. These will not be bothered by four-legged visitors and some claim they even help keep them away from surrounding plants! Please note: this bulb should be planted on it's side in very well drained soil to avoid rotting.

  • Fritillaria require a full sun to partial shade location.
  • Well-drained soil is critical to health and growth of frtillaria bulbs; they are very susceptible to rotting in soils that do not drain well.
  • Amend the planting area with top soil or plant starter mix. The addition of organic matter such as compost, manure or peat is also necessary when amending your soil.
  • To help improve your soil structure, and make nutrients more readily available to the fritillaria bulbs add Kelp Meal when amending your soil.
  • Fritillaria bulbs have a hollow center from the previous year’s stem. This hollow center can easily collect water and lead to the bulb rotting over winter. To help prevent rotting from happening, plant the fritillaria bulb slightly on its side, with the roots facing the earth.
  • After amending your soil, plant your fritillaria bulbs 6” deep
  • Space your fritillaria 8-12” apart. Planting in groups of 3 or more will give the best appearance.
  • Water the planting area immediately after planting to eliminate air pockets. Fritillaria are very sensitive to rotting, any additional water in fall or winter is not suggested.
  • Apply a thick 2-3” layer of organic mulch to the planting area in mid to late fall.

I had the plant growing this season but couldn’t see flower, I’m hopeful that next year I’ll see it thriving.

I grew these for the first time last year and was quite amused by this very showy, strange plant! It looks like it belongs in a Dr. Seuss book! They definitely smell a bit skunky but not terribly strong. I planted 4 more this fall which all came up but unfortunately the ones from last year did not come back. Glad I got them on a BOGO deal this year--its a bit pricy for a flower that does not perennialize.

Excellent

The price of buying only 1 or 2 fritillaria bulbs kept me from purchasing for awhile but now I keep coming back for more! They are so impressive and long-lasting in the spring and the deer don't go near them which is probably the best part for me :D

Make sure you plant them on their side so they don't get to wet! He's sprouted some waiting for spring. The bulbs are big. I can't wait to see him grow.

Pros:
  • Price & big bulbs
Cons:
What a beauty & head turner they are. Strong & tough looking (had to stake as it’s tall) as it sways in the spring air. Will want to buy other colors. :-)
