Description

Height x Spread: 60cm x 40cm

Large fat pokers, tawny apricot in colour fading to lemony cream are carried on sturdy upright stems above strong clumps of evergreen foliage.

Highlighted in a 2010 RHS trial, the recently introduced 'Moonstone' is a softer version of K. 'Tawny King' but boasts flowers almost twice its size.  Perfect for adding strong verticality and soft late season colour into a sunny border, it combines beautifully with Perovskia 'Blue Spire', Salvia 'Indigo Spire' and Dahlia 'Shaggy'.  To shine it needs a site in full sun with fertile, moist but free draining soil.
