Kniphofia Blaze - Red Hot Poker

Kniphofia Blaze blooms almost continuously unless frost burns off the flowers. After a wintry rest ours start blooming again in Early Spring. Kniphofia Blaze has rich green grasslike foliage that grows up to 3 feet tall. Ours have withstood Winter temperatures in the low teens, and should be able to take temperatures down to 0° F, though flowers and foliage will be damaged if temps drop much below the upper 20's. Kniphofia Blaze has flower stalks to nearly 4 feet. The hummingbirds battle for the rights to these flowers, this is a great addition to the Hummingbird Garden
