Wonderful statuesque Kniphofia which keeps its foliage right through the year. Needs a bit of space, but is very hardy, given good drainage. Fleshy glaucous leaves finely serrated and up to 70cm long, with fat coral-red pokers in late summer. From South Africa
1.2m x 1m wide. Moist but well drained position required. Worthy just for the foliage.
