Description

Fritillaria imperialis 'Lutea' is the yellow flowering cultivar of the Crown Imperial Frittillaria. A tall, robust, bulbous perennial, Fritillaria imperialis 'Lutea' has lush foliage and tall stems with a circular panicle of pendulous, yellow bell-shaped flowers crowned with a green topknot of leaf bracts giving it a very exotic look.

Fritillaria imperialis 'Lutea' is a very hardy plant but it must have good drainage. Always ensure the bulbs are planted on their side in a bed of grit and sharp sand. This will ensure that water doesn't collect water in the hollow eye from which the new growth emerges.
