This hybrid was the first cultivar of an ongoing breeding programe .
In 1997 one plant threw up a tall shoot and when it opened it looked just like a crown imperial (fritillary plant).
Praise for O. ‘Crown Imperial’, it is a stately eye-catching plant producing deep red buds that open to reveal silk lemon petals coupled with attractive glossy green foliage.
This is truly a winning combination, O. ‘Crown Imperial’ certainly lives up to it regal name.
