The Imperial or Kaiser’s crown Aurora (Fritillaria imperialis ‘Aurora’) is named after the Roman goddess of the dawn. This variety is tinted more orange-red, in comparison to the pure red crown Rubra (Fritillaria imperialis ‘Rubra’). Fritillaria Aurora has big bell-shaped flowers hanging downwards with a tall, sturdy stem that grows 90-100 cm, topped with a green ‘crown’. This type of Fritillaria is winter-sturdy and does not need any special care. Give the crown imperial a sunny spot in rich soil and it will not disappoint you!

Other information

  • First loosen the soil well where the flower bulbs will be planted. Then the soil is easier to work with.
  • Dig a hole and make sure it is 2 to 3 times as deep as the height of the fritillaria bulbs.
  • For the distance between the bulbs, make sure it is 2 times the diameter of the bulbs.
  • Plant the flower bulbs in the hole with the pointed side facing up or with the root base facing down.
  • Cover the fritillaria bulbs with soil and water them well.
