Variegated Crown Imperial (Fritillaria imperialis 'Aureomarginata')

Variegated Crown Imperial (Fritillaria imperialis 'Aureomarginata')

Impressive in height, color and beauty, fritillaria imperialis aureomarginata really packs a punch when it comes to making a statement. This new variegated version of a Crown Imperial stands out in any garden setting thanks to its regal bearing and brilliant hue. It produces large, well-formed, bell shaped blooms and highly attractive foliage. You'll love how the red-orange flowers pop in borders, cutting gardens or decorative pots. We love how this traditional tropical-looking favorite has been bred to include amazing striations in the foliage that give it even greater visual appeal. They grow 3-4 feet tall, making them an exceptional focal point specimen, too. Plant bulbs in groups for maximum impact!
