Flowering Months
After flowering allow the foliage die back naturally. When leaves and stems have yellowed, cut them back to ground level.
Caution: irritant to skin and eyes. The fragile Crown Imperial bulbs should be carefully planted in September and October. Choose a position in full sun. Fritillaria imperialis prefers a fertile, free draining soil. The bulbs are particularly susceptible to rotting in wet soils so add plenty of grit and a little well rotted manure or compost prior to planting. Plant bulbs at a depth of 12cm (5") and 20cm (10") apart. Water well to settle the soil.
