Crown Imperial Flower

In my recent post, i talked about some ways to get rid of moles in your garden and lawn areas.

Another known plant that supposedly have a foul smell that moles dont like is the Crown Imperial flowering bulb plant. We do have some of these plants mixed in with our tulip garden, but I dont think it work best as far as chasing the moles away because we still noticed mole presence in that garden.

Crown Imperial flower plant is a very unique looking flower, as shown in the photo above. As the name suggest, Crown Imperial, this plant resembles like a crown with its green pointy foliage, and at the same time the flowers looks like bunch of bells. Crown Imperials probably comes in many different colors but the colors I know is yellow and orange because those are what we have.

So if you have mole problems, you might try to plant this flower, Crown Imperial, to see if it will work for you. Even if it doesnt work very well with diverting the moles, they do looks really nice as a flower, that usually blooms duing spring times like the tulips.

i honestly cannot smell the foul smell they say it has, its probably not foul for humans but foul for the moles?

waliz, i dont want you to be disappointed that our garden is even smaller than you might imagine! we only have small gardens but we try to take good care of them as much as we can!
