Common Name: Crown Imperial Fritillary (Crown Imperial, Kaiser's Crown)
Latin Name:Fritillaria imperialis
Family Name: Liliaceae
The Crown Imperial Fritillary contains toxic alkaloids such as Imperialine, and although we do not know the exact levels of this alkaloid in the Crown Imperial, it is best to use the guiding rule that plants that grow from bulbs should not be fed to tortoises and avoid feeding all parts of this plant. The flowers of the Crown Imperial Fritillary are usually orange or yellow, although red varieties are also found in cultivars. See also Fritillary.
