The autumn light accentuates the colour of exotic spring flower spikes of Red Hot Pokers / Kniphofia perfectly at this time of year.
The long-lived flowers can last all the way through to the first frosts in November creating bold vertical statements.
There are a wide choice of sizes and colour variations available. Heights range from 45cm to a whopping 150cm dependent on variety.
Drought resistant, deer resistant, rabbit resistant and pretty much disease free, Kniphofia are an excellent choice where pests may be an issue.
