Kniphofia 'Border Ballet'
Mon, 26 Sep 2005 18:06:14 PDT
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.
