Answer: There are several named varieties of Kniphofia, with varying bloom colors. You may well have a soft yellow or creamy white variety. If your plants are in sunny spots and are given little to no water during the summer months, they should thrive. Hold back on water and fertilizer this summer and see if that doesn't stress your plants just enough to produce tall flower spikes that open completely before they die off. The blooms are attractive to insects and to hummingbirds - and Sevin is toxic to both, so hold off on chemical applications, too! Hope the above helps your Kniphofia give a great display this year.
