Fritillaria Rubra Maxima

Fritillaria Rubra Maxima

This Giant Fritillaria Crown Imperial really is one of the most amazing varieties of fritillaria possible. It will display spectacular orange-red pendants in spring/early summer and like all imperialis varieties, it will have a very unusual group of leaf-like bracts on top of each flower. They naturalise very well if left undisturbed in well drained soil. Pictured with Lutea 'Crown Imperial' which is a bright yellow and complements the red Rubra Maxima well. 18/20cm circumference bulbs supplied.

Soil Type

Well drained, light and moist soil

Fritillaria Imperialis bulbs can be planted at 15-20cm deep and 20cm apart in well drained/light and moist soil. When planting handle the bulbs carefully as fritillaria bulbs are renowned for being fragile. Can be planted in areas with full sun access or preferably with partial shade, and can be left to naturalise in grass, borders or even cold greenhouses.
When established in the right environment you can easily begin to see fritillaria plants multiply. Plants are very hardy and are an excellent choice for border displays, rockeries or for woodland areas, where their elegant drooping bell-shaped flowersrs are likely to add that little something different.
