Frits which don't bloom

We have a clump of Fritillaria imperialis 'Rubra Maxima' that has
persisted and slowly increased since 1994. A reliable bloomer. It needs
to be moved this fall to the new Fritillaria bed in the Bulb Garden.
I'll see if I can talk the horticulturist in charge of this garden out
of a few of the smaller daughter bulbs.

It is unique in its ability to persist in the landscape. Typically we
end up purchasing Frit. Imperialis on an annual basis to make sure our
displays are full.

As to what we would like in exchange, let me check with the
