Maybe your soil is to poor
Fritillaria imperialis loves a rich soil

and many salesman sell bulbs with hart-rot
always if you buy bulbs the bulb must be wrapped in tissue
otherwise the early appearing roots dry out
bulbs must be white at the bottom

This weekend, I visited Odyssey Bulbs, here in Massachusetts, and was
blown away by his diverse collection. What struck me, especially, were
his variegated Fritillarias. I've never seen these before - they are
very interesting looking with the yellow edges on the leaves. Anybody
else grow these?
