Plant Features

Poco™ Red Kniphofia Plants are a dwarf variety perfect for adding a nice hit of color and vertical interest. Kniphofia plants are clump-forming perennials that produce festive looking tiny, tube-like blooms atop a long single green stem. The overall effect is that of a long, ruffled bloom in shades of red, pink, yellow, orange and creamy pastels. Each flower last 2-3 weeks. Plants will shoot new flowers from late spring to mid-summer if spent blooms are kept removed. Red hot poker, or touch lily plants grow best in full sun to part shaded locations with fertile, well-drained soil. The roots require a lot of water during the blooming season to keep the new buds coming. They love containers and make excellent cut flowers. Kniphofia plants are an excellent source of nectar for butterflies and hummingbirds. They are seldom browsed by rabbits or deer.

Companion Planting: Achillea, Coreopsis, Crocosmia, Dahlia, Hemerocallis, Monarda
