Kniphofia ‘Pineapple Popsicle’

Slice open a fresh pineapple and you'll see the wonderful color of this blooming dynamo's flowers. 'Pineapple Popsicle' has compact, grassy foliage and produces massive numbers of reblooming cream to yellow spikes. A great blender with other colors in the garden. Did extremely well overwintering in the Chicago Botanic Garden's Trial Area.
