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. Soon the buds go to canary-yellow and end up a light butter crème. ‘Poco Citron’ pumps out huge numbers of blooms, hovering over the very upright, grassy foliage that matches perfectly with the other POCO™s. Excellent as a container plant or front of the border star. Summer to fall blooming.
