Packet of 5 seeds.
This is a large red hot poker, often reaching 1.5 metres or more, with robust leaves up to 1.2 metres long. The flowers are borne on very tall spikes and are orange/red, shading to yellow, on older well established plants the flower spikes are elongated carrying at least twice the number of flowers that are seen on similar species. The plant will spread well, once established. Can be expected to flower in the 3rd season from seed.
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.
