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.
Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
