Kniphofia linearifolia (new)

One of the boldest of all species, making broad clumps of heavily keeled deep green foliage. Pokers rise to 1.8m tall, composed of vivid orange buds opening to light yellow flowers in mid summer. Native to South Africa, where it often grows in large stands in moist areas. In cultivation here it is perfectly happy in any ordinary soil, even through droughty periods.

Kniphofia northiae

Kniphofia northiae

A distinct, huge Poker with leaves up to 2m long and over 10cm wide, arching out of a dense clump giving a very exotic effect. Big fat, dense, ovoid heads of very densely set flowers, pinkish-red in bud, and opening whitish-yellow in summer. Needs a sunny position in ordinary soil. I have seen this at 2500m in the Drakensberg, looking marvellous.
