Impressive!

Kniphofia rooperi or Red Hot Poker is native to the marshy coastal regions of the Cape Province (South Africa) and has impressed more than one gardener!

- a robust plant. It is hardy in temperate climates and grows in a thick clump with wide, arching dark, evergreen leaves.

- a plant with an architectural habit. Kniphofia rooperi produces impressive flowers in late summer, which can last through until the first chills of winter. Height: 120 - 150 cm.

- an exotic allure In a colour-themed garden, its tall bicoloured orangey-red flowers that fade to yellow-orange are a good accompaniment to autumnal-coloured grasses such as Panicum, Miscanthus), or with flowering varieties like Helianthus, Aster, Dahlia, Solidago, Crocosmia or Salvia microphylla.

Red Hot Pokers are greedy, sun-loving plants, which enjoy good, fertile, garden soil that is moist in summer and well-drained in winter. Too much moisture in winter can cause the roots to rot. Good resistance to temporary drought. Hardiness: -10°C

Maintenance:

- add some extra drainage (rough sand 2-5 mm) when planting;

- trim the damaged leaves and remove the dried floral spikes, apply a mulch of mature compost in early spring;

- in harsh climates protect by covering with bracken in winter.
