Product Information

Compared to a normal Red-Hot Poker, this new hybrid is a floral dynamo, rapidly forming a tight, healthy clump of spiky leaves and producing delicious spikes of sweet, cream and orange blooms continuously from June to October.  Give it a well-drained sunny spot and watch it go!

A fully hardy perennial, ‘Orange Vanilla Popsicle’ puts on a delightful show of bright bloom and it’s a lovely compact Kniphofia that really brightens up the garden as other plants begin to fade. Ideal for small gardens or even patio pots.
Easy to grow and a terrific drought-tolerant garden plant, red hot pokers are an excellent addition to city and coastal gardens and look great in the middle of wildlife borders and gravel gardens - as well as traditional cottage-garden style plantings.

Unlike older varieties of poker, the popsicle series has delightful grassy foliage that remains tidy so does not spoil the display and you don't need to worry about staking as it’s a dwarf variety, and is perfect in borders, pots and containers - great if you really don't have the time to be faffing about.

Adored by butterflies and bees for their nectar and flower arrangers for their style - red hot pokers make lovely cut flowers too!

Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot ready for planting out. Flowers June – September with a height and spread of 50cm (20in) x 40cm (16in).
