Kniphofia "Strawberry & Cream"


Kniphofia "Strawberry & Cream"  (Kniphofia)

First time flowering with me I bought from the garden center about 3 years ago in a plastic packet with a couple of roots in. Its one for the front of the border as its not very large .

Thanks both , my mini collection just starting to flower they have all settled in now so hopefully all should bloom this year.

Ah...now that's just reminded me that I had one last year, but I haven't seen it yet....I'll need to go and inspect. I love the colour of this one though.

Looks like a nice lot of flower spikes to come still.

Lovely, had two flowers coming but have been eaten again possibly blackfly and slugs, so disheartening :-/ do you think moving them may help ?

Thanks all ,

Karen it could be useful in your gold border ?

Daylily if its flowering its in the right spot so dont move , its the slugs and snails you need to sort out , if you have blackly its a sign the soil is too rich or you are feeding too much.
I Remember last year you had slug problem as well ... go and have a root round under all the leaves at the base if you dont like using slug pellets use a beer trap etc.
