green kniphofias

blulagoonMarch 22, 2006

I didn't quite know where to post this question,but I figured this is as good a place as any.

I wanted to plant a green-flowered kniphofia this summer in my garden. Does anyone know of one that stays green pretty much. Most seem to fade to cream or turn completely yellow. I've looked at 'Malibu Yellow' and in some pictures it looks very lime green,and in some pictures it just basically looks yellow. The same with 'Percy's Pride'.

'Green Jade' turns cream(I like to stay away from whites).

I saw a picture of 'Torchbearer'once in a book,but I can't seem to find anything else about it on the internet.

Is this hardy to your zone or is it an annual?

From what I've read,yes. I've never seen any around here but all of the catalogs and books with the plant in there says it's hardy to zone 5(my zone).
