  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to September

  • Other features: the flowers are attractive to bees

    Orange-red buds crowd the upright flower spikes and open from the base upwards from early summer to early autumn. The flowers are an orange-yellow, so create a distinctive two-tone effect on the spike. Best planted in humus-rich, moist, but well-drained soil, they’re perfect for a sunny mixed or herbaceous border.

  • Garden care: In autumn remove and compost the faded, flower spikes and apply a deep, dry mulch around the crown of the plant. Divide Divide and re-plant overcrowded colonies in spring.

    Comments about Kniphofia 'Alcazar':

    Great plant for Autumn borders and lasted well into winter. Very attractive to pheasants unfortunately but extremely resistant and fought back to display vibrant flowerjheads!
