Red Hot Poker

We've been impressed with the overwintering and flower power of this reblooming Kniphofia. Tall, sturdy stalks topped with orange-red flowers attract pollinators all summer. Durable, semi-evergreen foliage forms a dense clump. Recommended for gardeners looking for colorful, low water use plants. Introduced by: ItSaul Plants
