Description :

A popular plant and a great addition to a rock garden

Here's what the Horticultural Review wrote in 1879 about Kniphofia triangularis (Kniphofia - Tritoma macowanii):

« Kniphofia triangularis has all the advantages of other species of this genus, in terms of beauty, general appearance and flower longevity; but it has the advantage over them of being a dwarf [variety] and having flowers of a brighter red colour. It is also more floriferous […]

Here are its main features:

A dwarf plant, with few, thin, slightly rising leaves, so that the floral stems are kept clear. At most, the floral stems, which follow one another continuously until the frosts, hardly exceed 55 centimetres in height, and as the flowers begin to bloom almost as soon as the floral stems appear, all the plants together, when they are well-established, have something of the effect of a fireworks display!

The relatively small size of the plant, its sparse, glaucous green foliage, and especially its abundance of flowers make Kniphofia triangularis a valuable, sought-after species to decorate a flower bed.

It's also quite certain that you can grow it in pots, where it flowers very well. It is an easy plant to grow. Like the other species of the genus, it is multiplied by the division of the clumps, and also by its seeds, which germinate perfectly and reproduce the type quite accurately. »

The plant we grow at the nursery comes from seedlings; its flowering can vary from yellow-orange to orange-red.

Grown in the sun in humus-rich, sandy soil, fresh to moist from the beginning of its growth to the end of summer, well-drained and moderately dry during the winter months. Hardiness: -10°C

Synonyms: Kniphofia macowanii Baker, Kniphofia nelsonii Mast., Kniphofia triangularis subsp. triangularis, Tritoma macowanii, Tritoma nelsonii
