|F. eduardii is a perennial with whorls of narrow, lance-shaped, glossy, bright, medium-green leaves. The flowers are borne on stalks, up to 4 inches in height. Each stalk bears crowded umbrels of broadly, bell-shaped, pendant, 2 inches long, bright orange-red flowers, with a tuft of upright, leaf-like bracts above. Very similar to F. imperialis but without the fragrance. Native to Tajikistan.
The large, skunky-smelling bulb is rodent-repellent, and is very succeptible to bulb rot if improperly stored. For best results, plant bulb on its side, at a depth 4 times the diameter of the bulb. Water moderately while in growth, but reduce to almost dry when bulb is dormant. For container plants, repot yearly in fresh soil.
Second year and older plants should be fertilized monthly with half strength fertilizer.
