I depotted the Kniphofia I grew from seed (from Rachel) and put them in 
the ground last spring. The K. uvaria and K. drepanophylla were the more 
floriferous of the group. This winter we only got down below 10°F once 
and below 15° only 2-3 times more. I bring this up only to say that I 
intentionally planted my Kniphofia to see how they would do, and I'm 
guessing, with those kind of lows they will all come up, but we will 
see. I wanted to make a note here that K. ensifolia (if labeled 
correctly) still has green leaves from the base to about 6-8" up. It did 
not bloom last season. All other species foliage is dead, as I would 
have assumed for all before going into this winter.
