Red Hot Pokers are magnificent plants.  They look as though they should have been from some lost island populated by dinosaurs. Unfortunately, Victorian gardeners thought quite differently, believing them to be vulgar and in bad taste Growing Kiphofia Red hot poker plants prefer full sun and must be given adequate spacing to accommodate their mature size. Although poker plants are not fussy about the type of soil in which they are planted, they do require adequate drainage and do not tolerate wet feet. Plant in the early spring or autumn for best results. Our Kniphofia’s are available for sale as large plants in 5ltr pots How to Care for a Red Hot Poker Plant Although this beautiful plant is hard and moderately drought resistant, regular water is required in order for the plant to reach its full potential. Gardeners should be diligent with watering during hot and dry spells. Provide a 2 to 3inch layer of mulch to help with water retention and for protection during cold winters. Cut foliage off at the base of the plant in late Autumn and remove spent flower spike to encourage more blooms. Poker plants can be divided in the Autumn for new plants. Do not bury the crown of the plant any deeper than 3 inches. Water new plants thoroughly and cover with a liberal amount of mulch
