Kniphofia ‘Poco Citron’

A lovely, citrusy addition to the immensely popular POCO™ series. Short, dense spikes emerge a creamy lime-green, followed by a color shift to fresh lemon, then Canary-yellow and ending up a light butter crème. ‘Poco Citron’ pumps out huge numbers of blooms, hovering over the very upright, grassy foliage that match perfectly with the other POCO™s. Excellent as a container plant or front of the border star. Summer to fall blooming.
