About Orange - Fritillaria Bulbs

Fritillaria imperialis

Seed Type Bulb

Plant fritillaria bulbs in borders, flowerbeds or rock gardens, and watch their unique stalks appear with upside-down bell-shaped flowers. Their foliage is compact and curly and is balanced out above the flower with green spiked leaves reaching upward like a funny hat. Deer and rodents stay away from the plants and flowers so place fritillaria with other items that may need some protection in your garden. You cannot deny the pizzazz exuding from this flashy, fun flower.
