Kniphofia northiae

A very distinct, huge Poker with leaves up to 2m long (usually 1m max) and over 10cm wide, arching out of a dense clump giving a very exotic effect. Big fat, ovoid heads of very densely set flowers, soft-orange in bud, and opening cream in early summer; much earlier than most. Needs a sunny position in ordinary soil, moist or dry. I have seen this at 2500m in the Drakensberg, SA, enjoying wet summers and dry winters, but here it is easy in thick clay or thin dry soils.

Pot size: 2L
