Fritillaria Imperialis

Genus: Fritillaria.

Species: Fritillaria Ruba Massima (crown imperialis).

Last Autumn (2008) I brought 3 orange ones from

but I am planning to add some yellow ones too (maybe one day).

flower Apr/May

hight. 90cm

They will naturalize if left undisturbed in well drained soil.

I feed them with my own comfrey & nettle liquid + seaweed and neem oil.

pests: lily beetle (I will make a friendly insecticide with Neem oil)

Autumn 09 I moved them and this Spring (2010) they made a lot of shots and leaves but only 2 flowers.
