Kniphofia 'Shiny Beast'



Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
Our own hybrid introduction which we have trialed for 10 years before releasing a few. A very long bloom period from mid summer into fall. Narrow foliage supports 3'+ stems of rich burnt orange with the individual flowers glistening as if lacquered. Attribution to everyone's favorite 1978 Captain Beefheart album Shiny Beast (Bat Chain Puller). A Far Reaches exclusive which we think is damned good.
