thanks all

Siris I had my suspicion when I spotted it THINKING NO IT CANT BE ... oh yes it was ....
I have grown "Little Maid" which is small but this is bigger and hopefully more hardy ...

Janey I will look forward to seeing GW I think an easy series to grow and to introduce people to the various varieties of Kniphofia.

I have 5 varieties flowering in the front garden now and the wasps are loving them !!! with "Green Jade " just about to start throwing up spikes ... "scorched corn" never flowered again so deffo on the lift and spit either early September or leave till latish spring

That is interesting Gnarly. I've just split two clumps of K. Rooperi, Autumn flowering. Totally the wrong time to do it, but plants are looking strong and healthy...:))

Ha ha, I was just watching my recording of last week's GW this afternoon and thinking that looks a great kniphofia.
Monty said they like dampish soil, which was a surprise to me: they look like heat lovers.

hi Pb123
I wasnt happy with Monty with where he planted them as they dont like having sodden wet roots over the winter and he has clay soil plus they like a open postion with no crowding out by other plants in the shade thry dont normally flower either , they do like lots of water when in flower makes them flower longer but has to be free draining , GW has turned into a magazine show much prefer beechgrove
