Plant Features

Creamsicle Kniphofia Plant is one of the Popsicle Series produced by Terra Nova Nurseries, Inc. that were bred not only for smaller spaces, but for their extended bloom time. This Torch Lily, or Red Hot Poker, as some refer to them, is purely reminiscent of the "dreamsicle creamsicles" of old. You know, those yummy, orange, sherbet popsicles with vanilla ice cream inside? This dwarf variety is sure to fit somewhere in your garden and is well-worth having! This is the color of summer!

Healthy plants

Both plants ordered arrived in good condition and transitioned well when planted 2 days later. I will definitely order more next year!

Plants arrived well packed, in great condition. Now happily growing. Can't wait to see them bloom! Better price than we could find on other websites too. Thank you!

healthy Creamsicle Kniphofia

Good company. I would recommend for buying plants. I am excited about the plants I ordered from you! The Torch Lilies were a good size and healthy Green leaves. Thanks for the instructions for planting the flowers.

Follow up on Creamsicle

I wrote in my previous review that my only regret was that I didn't order more of these. So I did order more Kniphofia and to my absolute delight my new shipment arrived even faster than the previous one (3 days!) and the plants this time were even larger than the first. I planted them next to the first batch and no doubt about it, the new ones were bigger than the ones that had been in the ground for 3 weeks. I'll be looking to GrowJoy every time I'm looking to order my garden stock!

Creamsicle Kniphofia

I wanted to add the Creamsicle to my garden but had a difficult time finding them available. Then I found them on GrowJoy and for a great price. The plants I received were much bigger than I had expected. My only regret is that I didn't order more, which I'm about to do.
