The ‘crown imperial’ Fritillaria is one of the most exotic of garden plants. It almost seems to have sprung from the pages of Dr. Seuss. Fritillaria Vivaldi is a dwarf crown imperial with pendant flowers that emerge from the top of a leafy, rigid central stem. The petals are more scarlet than the traditional orange, and the pistils extend beyond the petals, flashing a bit of yellow. This plant looks amazing planted in clusters, and it will eventually naturalize into the landscape. Its flowers are both fragrant and deer resistant, and it is recommended as a repellent for squirrels, moles, and rabbits. It is hardy to Zone 5 and will grow in full sun to partial shade. This variety reaches 60cm (24″) tall. Our flower bulbs for fall planting ship in September through fall while supplies last.
