Shortly after I uploaded an image to the wiki with the name Kniphofia
thomsonii snowdenii, David Fenwick contacted me privately with some
comments on this image. Once I identified my source for the plant, he was
reasonably sure that it represents not Kniphofia thomsonii snowdenii but
rather a triploid form of Kniphofia thomsonii. 

David was also kind enough to provide three photos of Kniphofia which, with
his consent, I have uploaded to the wiki. One shows the triploid form of
Kniphofia thomsonii as he grows it; the other two show Kniphofia thomsonii
snowdenii from his collection. One of these two photos clearly shows the
pubescence on the exterior of the flower of Kniphofia thomsonii snowdenii.

The text of the wiki has been modified with these things in mind. Take a
look at:…

Thanks, David!
