Kniphofia galpinii Baker is another species with fibrous grasslike leaves closely allied to Kniphofia triangularis, recorded from northern Swaziland and northern and central Natal in altitudes from 900 to 1800 m at grassy vleis locations. There seem to be many cultivars of this species. According to Elsa Pooley in her Field Guide this species is autumn flowering. St Andrews Botanic Garden, Scotland, reports it flowers there October-December. Other sources on the internet report summer flowering. Perhaps the time of flowering depends on where it is grown.
