    Comments about American Meadows Yellow Crown Imperial Bulbs:

    The red Lilies grew just fine but only got the stem of 1 yellow and no flowers on it. The second bulb I had did not even grow. I think the awful dry weather from last year may have stunted them

    Comments about American Meadows Yellow Crown Imperial Bulbs:

    I ordered this fritillaria because the ones I had in the garden had stopped flowering last year. Although it has flower buds which have not opened yet, they are very small.

    The size of the plant is disappointing --- description says 2 to 3 feet tall --- mine is only about a foot tall. Maybe it will be bigger next year?

      Comments about American Meadows Yellow Crown Imperial Bulbs:

      My husband and I were so excited about these. They were expensive, but we decided it was worth it. We planted several and they all came up Spring 2009 except 1 (this happens, so we were not totally upset). They are very large, so expect a little extra work to get them planted. We fertilized and all of our other bulbs came up, but not these, not one of them. The area where we planted them looks very empty and I do not think they were worth the price for one year. Maybe they need 2 years to recharge, my fingers are crossed!

      USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

      To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

      • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
      • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
