Kniphofia typhoides - Red Hot Poker

This listing is a pack of 5 seeds

This is an unusual species of Kniphofia (Red Hot Poker) coming from the North East of South Africa.  It has a tall reddish/brown spike of flowers which look more like those found on the Cats Tail Lilies (Bulbinella), to which it is closely related.  It's natural habitat are low lying wetlands, so this is ideal for a location that does not dry out to much, often tricky areas to get plants to grow in.  Once widespread in habitat, it is becoming increasingly rare due to the overgrazing of its habitat by domesticated livestock. 

The reddish brown spikes of flowers are produced in the summer and have a strong, sweet scent reminiscent of honey and grow up to 1 metre tall.  Wildlife loves the flowers with its copious nectar and pollen.  It is ideally suited for growing in Zones 7 and up.  In colder areas it can be grown in containers and brought into shelter during the worst excesses of the winter weather.  Perfect for  use in cottage garden settings or at the back of a border.
