Kniphofia caulescens

26th June 2018

Kniphofia caulescens is a spectacular 'poker' with broad blue-grey leaves on large rosettes. It comes from Lesotho in South Africa where it grows in marshes and wet gullies. I hoped that its tolerance of damp would mean it adapted well to this garden. Perhaps it would, this is not the real thing which should have stout spikes of yellow and orange flowers.
