Buy Kniphofia & Achillea plant combination Kniphofia & Achillea plant combination: A great planting combination

The plants in this collection will die right back in autumn, then fresh new growth will appear again in spring.

    Structure and form are prominent components of this combination, with the fantastic poker-like flowers of the kniphofia jutting up above the flattened plate-like heads of the yarrow. The colour match is great too!

    In this collection you will receive three of each of the following varieties, each in a 9cm pot.

  • Kniphofia 'Tawny King' Tall bright and imposing, kniphofias lend height, vibrancy and drama to any garden. 'Tawny King' produces fantastic 'pokers' with dark bronze stems and tubular, cream flowers that open progressively from the base of the flowerhead above clumps of strap-like leaves. The flowers start opening in July from apricot buds and continue to flower well into October. Originally from South Africa, the elegant, torch-like flowers of kniphofia make vertical accents in a sunny border and look particularly good as an exotic scheme based on 'hot' colours. They also look great with a background of ornamental grasses. This is an easy and undemanding plant. Grows to 1.25.

  • Achillea 'Terracotta' Masses of rich, terracotta flowers appear in summer and fade to soft yellow as they age. This is a long flowering and drought-tolerant perennial that is perfect for a sunny spot in an herbaceous or prairie-style border. It makes an excellent cut flower too. Grows to 80cm.

  • Planting tips: Prepare the bed well by digging in lots of composted organic matter before you plant. For best results it is essential that the plants are kept well watered for the first year, particularly during warmer weather.
