Description
This RHS AGM variety produces dramatic crowns of bright yellow, bell-shaped flowers, topped with a whirl of leaf-like bracts. This exotic-looking hardy perennial makes a real statement in borders, where its impressive height is ideal for the back of the border. Plant Fritillaria imperialis 'Maxima Lutea' in groups for a colourful, eye-catching display in late spring. The foxy aroma of the bulbs is also said to deter moles and rodents. Height: 1.5m (5'). Spread: 30cm (12"). Supplied as bulbs.

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Fritillaria thrives in reliably moist, well drained soil that is rich in organic matter. Add plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost to the soil prior to planting to improve less than ideal soils. Plant fritillary bulbs at a depth of 10cm (4") and 10cm (4") apart in a sunny or partly shaded position. Fritillary bulbs are fragile so always handle them with care. Planting them on their sides will help to avoid water collecting in their hollow crowns and prevent the bulbs from rotting. For natural looking drifts of fritillary flowers, gently cast the bulbs across the planting area and plant them where they land!
More Info
When growing fritillaries, it is essential to allow their foliage to die back naturally as this will feed the bulb for the following year. Where bulbs are naturalised in grass, avoid mowing the area until their foliage has died back.
Caution

Caution: irritant to skin and eyes
