Description :

Originally from South Africa (Drakensberg Mountains), Kniphofia caulescens 'John May' is one of the finest forms of Tritoma with its blue, delicately toothed foliage arranged in a rosette.

At the end of the summer, from August until October, it produces floral stems that can grow up to 1 metre. Coral red flowers that fade to lemon yellow.

In the garden we use Kniphofia caulescens 'John May' as a focus plant for a vertical highlight on the edge of a path or in a rock garden. It can go well with Echinops or Perovskia, planted next to tall grasses with colourful foliage (Miscanthus 'Ghana', Panicum with blue-green foliage, Schizachyrium scoparium 'Blue Heaven').

Grow in the sun in good, fertile, well-drained garden soil. Hardiness: - 20 °c.
