@richard.spicer.7906 Love these Tried growing once but the bulb was eaten away by some kinda insect or probably a slug. Would like to try again when you see how beautiful they are but I think I would grow it on in a pot in the greenhouse well away from the beasties.

Crown Imperial 'Aurora' is growing nicely, should be flowering soon. Just a single bulb, although wish I'd bought three now. #fritillary #fritillaria #fritillaria-imperialis #crownimperial

Thought I'd lost this one to rot as my others are almost flowering. But I was delighted to see this #newgrowth 😀 #fritillary #fritillaria #fritillaria-imperialis #crownimperial

Coincidently, this was they very one I originally wanted over the other two, so it feels extra special that it's still alive 😁
