Kniphofia caulescens (100 seeds)


Out of stock

Kniphofia caulescens (Asphodelaceae) It is native to the high grassy slopes of the Drakensberg Mountains. There, in mid to late summer, you will find huge fields of it ablaze with thousands upon thousands of large soft-orange and yellow flower spikes. It adds color, texture and structure to the garden with its robust rosettes of blue foliage. These uniquely colored strap-like leaves stand out among their green leafed companions. While this plant is widely adaptable it does especially well in gardens at higher altitudes. Kniphofia caulescens thrives in compost-enriched soils that are well drained over the winter months. Sowing: Sow in summer. Locality: Lesotho. Harvest: June 2023
