Unknown plant at chelsea Flower show


By Cam

Could anyone help. i am looking for a plant that was featured as a highlight plant on the chelsea flower show.

It is a yellow flower. There is a story attached that when the angels came down all the flowers bent their heads but this plant did not. This links in some how to a teardrop effect on the flower.

The leaves are green.

I am sorry but there is nothing else I can tell you about this plant.

Any help would be great



I believe you are referring to Crown Imperial (fritillaria imperialis). It grows from a large bulb and is readily available
