  • Information
  • Kniphofia uvaria. Red Hot Poker, A.K.A. Tritoma or Torch Lily, loves sun and heat, and is perfect for that baking area beyond the reach of your water hose. If the hummingbird-beloved flowers are allowed to mature, the songbirds will swarm, making a meal of the seeds, though those that elude them may sprout where they fall next spring. The tough, grassy foliage, which can grow up the 3' wide, is evergreen, but may get a bit battered in winter. Remove tattered leaves in spring. Store moistened seeds in a cold place for 4 weeks before sowing them indoors, 6 to 8 weeks before transplanting them out into the garden. Deer resistant. Perennial. Summer flowering. Height: 2' to 4'.

    Average seed life: 1 to 2 years.
