Packet of 5 seeds.

This species of Red Hot Poker comes from the mountainous areas of the Karoo (in South Africa), being found beside rivers and streams. It is a relatively large species with leaves to 60 cm and flowering spikes to 120 cm or more. The flower spikes are narrow with orange red flowers borne in the summer. A spreading variety, it has underground stolons (fleshy roots) from which new clumps will arise.

This species is hardy enough for garden use and will survive in Zone 6 and above with little or no protection. With a mulching layer of straw, it may well survive in Zone 5. All new plantings will need some winter protection whilst they establish themselves.
