Buy Kniphofia 'Bees Lemon' red hot poker: Luminous late summer pokers

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, humus-rich, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: August to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A sensation in the late summer garden, this showy perennial attracts bees and butterflies, but is rarely affected by deer or rabbits, so is perfect for both city and country gardens. Emerging from lime green buds, the bright yellow flowers open upwards from the base of the spike over several weeks, so the display is relatively long-lived. Plant this with hot colours like orange and red, as well as contrasting purples.

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

I bought this two years ago knowing it would take time to establish. The first year it looked healthy with lots of leaves but no flower. This year again lovely leaves and was discussing it's future when at last a shoot appeared and one beautiful flower is appearing. Hopefully next year more will appear. Looks good against Crystal Fountain clematis.
