Rubra Maxima Crown Imperial

Rubra Maxima Crown Imperial

Keeps moles and voles away with its faintly skunky odour.

Statuesque and dramatic, Rubra Maxima adds colour and flair to your landscape. Plant in groups along the back of a sunlit border to draw the eye over the entire garden and highlight smaller plants at the front. Butterflies and other beneficial pollinators adore the clusters of bell-shaped flowers, but pesky deer and rodents detest the smell. Easy to grow, they require only regular watering and well-drained soil.

Important Shipping Notes:

Breck's times its shipments from Holland so that bulbs and bareroots arrive at the proper planting time (depending on climatic conditions) for each area of North America. To promote optimum stress protection in transit and your success in the garden, bareroot perennials are kept in the ground in our nurseries until fully dormant. In the Fall, these plants tend to arrive at the later end of the shipping window below.

We will pack and ship your order based on the following schedules. The type of product you order or the weather may affect the anticipated shipping schedule below. Based on the contents of your order we always strive to ship your order complete, and as early as possible in the planting season to allow for the best root development once planted.
