Kniphofia 'Safranvogel'

Safranvogel Torch Lily

Deciduous, Herbaceous Perennial

"A splendid Torch Lily with masses of luminous light coral and cream tinted flowers that appear over and over again from June to frost. Each multicolored flower scape seemingly glows in full sun to light shade. To 26" tall in bloom. Forms spreading clumps in rich, well-drained soil with regular summer water. An exceptional color for a torch lily. Combine with hardy blue Lily of the Nile (Agapanthus) and daylilies for fine effect." -- Xera Plants
