Fiery “Poker” Flowers Add Shape and Color Variety
If you’re looking for a truly unusual plant, the Pyromania® ‘Orange Blaze’ Red Hot Poker more than fits the bill. Long, thin, and bright orange flowers grow in a column along a central stalk. Each plant grows a dozen or more of these spikes - or “red hot pokers” - creating a sensation wherever you plant them!
Plant your Red Hot Poker plant in a container to liven up your patio or alongside other perennials and flowering shrubs. Because of its compact size, this plant is ideal for borders - and can even be cut for bouquet arrangements. The plant’s upright growing habit also adds height to any landscaping design.
What’s more, the flowers continue blooming throughout the summer into the fall! A blossoming Kniphofia is irresistible to pollinators, including birds, bees, and butterflies. Even after the plant stops flowering for the season, its grass-like foliage will add rich texture to your yard or patio planting.
The Red Hot Poker offers tremendous payoff for very little effort. This easy plant is salt-tolerant, meaning that it’s happy near sidewalks or roadways. It also is incredibly drought-tolerant, making it ideal for dry climates, as well as resistant to deer and rabbits.
Don't miss out on this easy growth and one-of-a-kind color - add a vibrant and versatile Red Hot Poker to your landscaping today!
Planting & Care
Planting: Choose an area in your yard that receives full sun, at least six hours per day. As long as your soil is well-draining, your Kniphofia will be happy. When planting, add a two- to three-inch layer of compost.
Watering: This plant loves heat and dryness, though it appreciates adequate watering when flowering.
Fertilizing: In spring, add a balanced, organic fertilizer.
Pruning: Trim your Red Hot Poker’s leaves in the spring to stimulate growth. In colder places, tie up the foliage above the crown of the plant to prevent water accumulation and deadly freezing.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.
