Not all Red Hot Pokers are red. Prefer softer, more subtle colors? Earlier season blooms? Shorter flower spikes? Little Maid is the kniphofia for you! This beauty produces slender flower spires that are just 18-24 inches tall, half the height of others in this clan. The light yellow flowers develop from rich green buds and mature to whisper light ivory. Little Maid performs beautifully in Northern California, where it expands to clumps of narrow, grassy foliage two feet across and thrives with next to zero care. Blooms spring into summer.
