A rare Crown Imperial very seldom offered. Tall stems, up to 1m (although usually less), with an abundance of flowers in a shade of orange-yellow, infused and lined with deep orange-red. This intensifies towards the tips. The flowers flare and are different in shape to imperialis.
The 'foxy' smell associated with Crown Imperials is fainter in eduardii and many cannot detect it.
This has to be raised from seed, which is slow. Well drained sunny spot. Tajikistan.
