The red amd banana yellow tips of their flower stems give the Kniphofia the common name 'Red-hot poker' and 'torch lily'. These tall flowering perennials are native to Africa and are a popular plant for the back of a border or as a statement piece in the garden. These vibrant plants will change colour throughout the year by producing spikes of upright, often bi-coloured bright flowers that sit above sword-leaved foliage and come in shades of red, orange and yellow. These are long-lived species that will be a feature of your garden for years to come.
How to grow Kniphofia
Plant in a space protected from strong winds with full sun and fertile, well-drained sandy soil that isn't too wet over winter. Enrich the soil with humus for the best growth; in some cases, you may need support with a stake. Tidy plants in mid-spring and deadheaded after flowering.
Are Kniphofia invasive?
Kniphofia can be invasive in certain conditions. To control their growth, grow in a container or raised bed or install a plastic screen buried 30cm under the soil and an inch above.
