When our garden professionals saw this new fritillaria variety, they were simply enchanted. With its exotic good looks, amazing colorway and improved resistance to Fusarium wilt, Sunset Crown Imperial definitely impressed our staff. And we're certain it will quickly become a favorite of novice and seasoned gardeners alike. Boasting bright orange florets suspended in a unique collarette form beneath a crown of bronze, it is easy to see how Sunset got its name. Makes an excellent cut flower and naturalizes well in the landscape.
