Monarch's Crown 85/11
As one of the earliest flowers to be cultivated, the crown imperial has had a long reign in the world of design, making its first appearance on a Moorcroft design under a Bishop backstamp with a fierce red variety (Crown Imperial, 1998, Limited Edition 600).
Rachel now turns her attention to the golden-red colours of the wild form which march from the Middle East to the Himalayan foothills. Monarch√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s Crown has been crafted to allow a small band of bright yellow and burnt-orange flowers to rise majestically like the crown of a King from light-green foliage with a head of green, leaf-like bracts. Below, further stately symmetrical flowers bow down to the imposing bloom.
