Fritillaria

The most dramatic of spring-flowering bulbs, crown imperial is as easy to grow as any of its _Fritillaria_ cousins. It's easy to care for, as the bulbs and flowers possess a scent that deters even the hungriest critters.

Especially well-suited to woodland plantings and open rock gardens, fritillaries deserve to be better known among bulb gardeners. Their bell-shape blooms are highly unusual and showy in form and color.
