With a similar habit to Kniphofia caulescens, this little treasure has lighter, almost lime green foliage which is elongated and slender. Flower heads are lemon in colour with a hint of orange on new petals, hence the name 'Citrina'. Flowers last for a long period of time from Spring through into Summer. Kniphofia in general are hardier than they look, plants in our gardens have withstood temperatures down to -5 or -10. In summer they drink water freely and are not harmed by over watering.

 

SOWING ADVICE: Sow at approximately 15-20°C (60-68°F) in pots or trays using a good quality compost, cover the seed lightly with a sprinkling of compost, or vermiculite. Place in a polythene bag or propagator and keep the soil moist at all times. When the seedlings are large enough to handle transfer and grow them on in cooler conditions. When the risk of frost has passed, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 14-21 days before planting out 30cm (12") apart.

 

Suitable for the Garden, vegetable garden, allotments, borders and containers. 

Be prepared to water well and supplement feed with high-potash feed during season. Regular feeding is recommended.
