Flamenco Red Hot Poker

Flamenco Red Hot Poker

Kniphofia Flamenco flowers with bottle brush looking blooms. Red hot pokers perennials for us and they're liked for their tall, unusually bight summer blooming spikes. This variety has fiery red, yellow and orange tones. They are also commonly known as torch lilies, and though they do share some characteristics they are not true lilies (they are not members of the Liliaceae family). This repeat-bloomer benefits from deadheading the stalk to encourage re-blooming. Blooms lowest down on the flower stalk dry up and fade first, turning a pale brown. This fading then progresses up the rest of the stalk until reaching the top bloom which is the last to lose its color. At maturity Flamenco gets 24" tall and 18" wide.
