Glowstick Kniphofia (Red Hot Poker)

$12.99

Kniphofia is also known as Red Hot Pokers (but often times, they're not red any more...) Glowstick has an abundance of bright yellow flowers from Summer to Fall lure pollinators in with nectar-rich blooms. Plus, it makes an excellent cut flower for bouquets. When not in bloom, the finely textured foliage resembles ornamental grass – adding a nice texture to any garden.

Care

Kniphofia prefers full sun and moist to average, well-drained, but not overly-dry soil. Good drainage is particularly important in winter. Drought tolerant, it requires only average soil and water, making it an ideal companion to many salvias. Best grown as a perennial in zones 6-9.

Growth Habit

Glowstick gets 26-29" high and 10-22" wide at maturity. The orange blooms occur in summer to early fall. An extremely bold groundcover, Kniphofia attracts hummingbirds while undisturbed by deer and other wildlife. Thriving in full sun, it is day neutral and blooms with heat and high light. 

 Toxicity

Containing no toxic plant parts, Red Hot Poker (Kniphofia spp.) is a vibrant, summer-blooming, full-sun perennial. Deer Resistant.
