Stately and tall, Crown Imperial (Fritillaria imperialis) makes a striking statement in the garden, whether in beds or borders. Underplanted with cobalt-blue Grape Hyacinth (Muscari), the effect is stunning!

Both plants are recipient of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society. There are deer and rabbit resistant too. Enjoy!
