Mark, I've had seed of this strain at least three times over the years. It's
been around for awhile - I first obtained it back in 1987 from Thomson &
Morgan. This first acquisition was described as a dwarf strain in mixed
colors. I don't remember that K. uvaria was mentioned, but the photo on the
seed pack looked nothing like K. uvaria - the plants shown were very
delicate and in varied colors. 

More recently the photos on the packs look more like one of the big and
relatively stout Kniphofia. 

Although I don't know who raised it, it had to be at least well before 1987.
