Last year I bought just one plant of Kniphofia 'Border Ballet', because I was unsure if it would be hardy here. The plants at the nursery came in a beautiful range of pastel colors, including pink. The plant over-wintered fine, and plumped up into a beautiful mound this summer. The flower stalks are just appearing now, and I'm eager to see the color (can't remember which color I selected last year). Doing a Google search, I see that this is a seed-grown selection of K. uvaria. Does any one have more information on this "seed strain", such as where was it was developed and by whom? I can post a photo to the PBS wiki after the flowers open, which should be in a few days.
