Thanks Hazel!

Hazel gave me this kniphofia at the get-together 2014. It didn't flower last year as it was still quite small, but grew well. I'm delighted to see it flowering this year, thanks Hazel!

I have another kniphofia, which is yellow. It always flowers early, but I could see nothing coming this year so got a little worried. Looking more closely yesterday, I was glad to see there are flowers coming up, just a little later than usual I think. I'm hoping that eventually both will flower in sync :-)

What a pretty colour.

Very nice, I imagine the cold start to the month prob slowed the yellow down.

I have only ever had one Knophofia, called 'Bees Lemon'. The emerging flowers were constantly being eaten by slugs. But I think I'm ready to try again with a more slug-tolerant variety. I like the colour of that one, Claire.

Glad its doing well for you Claire! I have several of them around the garden and some have that nice civilised colour but some are totally FLAME! This really surprises me as they all came from the same source!

That's a lovely one, beautiful colour.
