The Crown Imperial (Fritillaria imperialis)


The Crown Imperial (Fritillaria imperialis)

I like these flowers but please do not smell them. They truly stink. I had this started in the greenhouse and will leave it in the pot for now.

I grew these when I had the garden down the road, the flowers are lovely, but as you say they smell awful.....

Didnt know they had a pong, but ive never got close enough to have a sniff, too near a Rose shrub.

Very attractive flower, Klahanie. Gorgeous colour too. Pity its not fragrant, but, it's still lovely to see.

Thank you for you notes SBG and Kate. They are very attractive and exotic looking plants and I probably will buy few more.
Maybe that is a good thing that they stink as critters around here will not eat them.
