Kniphofia pauciflora

These plants enjoy regular water and are currently at their best after all the rain. Like all bulbs, they need a rich, well-composted soil and regular feeding with organic fertilizer (such as Vita Fruit and Flower 3.1.5) throughout the season.

Kniphofia pauciflora is a hardy, evergreen bulb that prefers to grow in a sunny position, reaches a height of 30cm and produces yellow tubular flowers on long flower spikes throughout the summer months. It should be planted in large groups for the best effect and looks great when contrasted with blue flowering Agapanthus.
