Kniphofia-like spikes of erect, thin, strap like leaves, formed in basal rosettes, hold dense terminal racemes of star shaped bright yellow flowers on strong stems which are a stunning sight when planted en-masse. These lovely flowers originated in the South Island of New Zealand, where they grow in damp places, often in tussock grassland.

Sowing Advice

Sow seeds at any time covering them very thinly with compost or grit, and leaving some of the seed showing, as light can initiate germination, just as in the wild, and leave in a well-lit, warm spot. Sometimes, artificial heat may not be needed, and may prevent germination, as some species will only germinate in the spring after being chilled in the moist seed tray. Grow on in sharply draining compost in a pot, or the open ground.
