Can you just not get enough of Fritillaria???

Then we created this collection just for you! Holland Bulb Farms is proud to present the Frantic for Fritillaria Collection which contains our (3) top-selling Crown Imperials! You'll receive (2) of each of the colors red, orange, and yellow for a total of (6) top-sized bulbs.

About Fritillaria: Fritillaria (or Crown Imperials as they are also called) are unique-looking tall plants which make quite the statement in the mid-spring garden. Their bell-shaped blooms hang upside down from the green "crown" of foliage at the top of the plant. Truly a wonder, these plants are extremely deer and rodent resistant and some claim that just their presence keeps these pests away from surrounding bulbs and plants as well! Please note: plant bulb on its side.

This collection contains the following:

2 (1 bulb) packs of #87104 Lutea Yellow Fritillaria

2 (1 bulb) packs of #87106 Rubra Red Fritillaria

2 (1 bulb) packs of #87107 Aurora Orange Fritillaria

  • 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.
