Description

Kniphofia uvaria 'Grandiflora' is a red-hot classic for the summer garden! Luckily these pokers aren’t too hot to handle – they’re easy to grow, reliable and fully hardy, making them a fabulous, long-lasting and rewarding perennial which will bring glowing colour, height and upright structure to summer borders, year after year. Producing tall rod-like stems topped with a spike of fiery orange, tightly-packed blooms, it’s no wonder these scorchers are commonly known as Red Hot Pokers.

Not only do their flowers make a startling impact in the garden, but the lush strap-like foliage fills a gap with greenery, providing texture and ground cover too. Whether your planting schemes could do with a touch of heat to help balance out the blues and purples, or you have a sizzling-hot border full of warm-coloured flowers and leafy jungle plants, Kniphofia uvaria 'Grandiflora' is an all-round super choice!
