Re: Re: was Tx. skies NOW Fritillaria

I personally haven't grown F. imperialis, but i planted my F. raddeana
the same way you are supposed to plant the Crown Imperials. They need to
be angled slightly to avoid water collecting in the resevoir formed
where the stem comes out. Not the right wording here I'm sorry, but I
think you get the idea. The water will just rot them out and thus they
don't return.

Sounds like you do grow F. imperialis ? And you get it to
return the 2nd, 3rd,...etc. year ?
If so, how, please ?
All the bulb folks who speak to it complain about its
failure to return.
