Rubra Maxima Crown Imperial

Rubra Maxima Crown Imperial

This startling beauty keeps moles and voles away with its faint skunky odor.

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 them, but pesky deer and rodents detest the smell. Easy to grow.Fritillaria imperialis
