I planted five bulbs last fall, the flowers are beautiful. I can't seem to find any info on whether these plants will multiply. Can anyone help?

Try this link. http://www.msue.msu.edu/msue/imp/modzz/00000641.html

It states: Divide dormant bulbs in autumn and replant
immediately. The bulbs produce offshoots which can be
used for propagation.

Thanks, found some beautiful brilliant red bulbs today which I may order but they are $12 each bulb - but I love the yellow and orange so probably will get some RED!

Candee - My neighbour in England had a garden full of yellow crown imperials and they spread like mad. In fact her back garden was full of them. Very expensive plant back home!

you should plant them on a base of horticultural grit as they dont like being too damp in the winter. once they get established there's no stopping them.

I have some slides of other Frits that I will have in my photo albums soon. I'll post when they are there
