Fritillaria imperialis 'Beethoven' is a dwarf version of this remarkable accent plant. The plants produce a crown of leaves in early spring followed by a very upright stem that emerges in May and June. This is crowned by more foliage and a cluster of pendant, bright orange flowers that are quite fragrant. The plants are deer resistant and will thrive in full sun to partial shade. They are highly recommended for naturalizing for a wild look in early spring. One bulb per pack.
Plant height to 60cm (24")
Plant in full sun to part shade
Bulbs are easy to plant and easy to grow. Flower Bulbs are broken down into two very general groups – Fall planting bulbs benefit from sitting in cold soil. Spring planting bulbs do not require cold soil to trigger flowering. Fall planting bulbs can be planted any time between late September and January, but most gardeners plant fall bulbs in October and November, about the same time you would plant garlic. Fall planting bulbs will bloom the following spring and early summer. Spring planting bulbs should be sunk into the ground in March and April. They tend to bloom later in the spring, into mid-summer.
