If you garden with a sense of style and appreciate all things red, flashy and splashy, then Crown Imperial flowers are right up your alley! Plus, lush greenery grows in sensational whorls around the lower portion of each stem for an even richer appeal. Plant in areas with good drainage and plenty of sun for a low-maintenance display from mid to late spring!  Plant the Imperial Crown Bulb on its side so that it doesn't hold water and rot.
