Description Fine Print
 
The crown imperial (Fritillaria imperialis) is a dramatic yet structurally peculiar species. Vertical stems to 3 feet tall are covered in whorls of lance-shaped leaves on their lower halves, then naked for the top half before culminating in a tuft of leafy green bracts from which hang pendulous bell-like, yellow, orange or near-red flowers. 'Argenteovariegata' is a bold variegated cultivar with green and creamy yellow leaves and bracts, dark stems, and deep orange-red flowers. Plant bulbs on their sides to avoid water accumulation within the bulb cavity - yes, the bulbs are strange too! Mass plantings make an incredible display.
