Common Name: Red Hot Poker
Unlike a poker player, this plant is more than happy to show you all of its fantastic cards: useful garden height, vigor in the landscape, and a rich flower color. Red-orange flower spikes appear above a substantial clump of grass-like foliage. After the first flush of flowers, this Kniphofia will continue to rebloom with new flower spikes, staying in bloom for most of the summer.
Tested for hardiness in our Michigan zone 6, heavy snowfall winters, and could be hardier with winter mulch and protection.
Commonly called Red Hot Poker or Torch Lily for their tall flower spikes. These South Africa natives offer tremendous garden value by combining grass-like foliage with tall flower scapes. An excellent perennial for the middle of the border.
