Packet of 5 seeds.

This is a fairly hardy rhizomatous plant, related to the red hot pokers. It generally has narrower flower spikes than it's relation, the shape of which gives rise to it's common name. In this case the spikes have yellow flowers that open in succession, individual spikes make be in flower for 6 - 8 weeks during late winter/early spring. It grows to 90 cm tall with a spread of 60 cm. It is dormant during the summer and needs to be allowed to die back once flowering is completed, before being brought back into growth in the Autumn.

The plant is a winter grower and is reportedly hardy down to - 5 Deg C. In areas that get lower temperatures than this, it can still be grown in an unheated greenhouse or in deep pots that can be moved under cover during the worst of the weather. Tolerant of very wet conditions, it needs to be grown in a damp location or in pots stood in trays of water.

Quick and easy from seed, it still needs to be a fair size before it flowers. Well grown it may flower in it's 4th year, however 5 or 6 is more likely. The flowers are well worth the wait! Tolerant of very wet conditions, it needs to be grown in a damp location or in pots stood in trays of water.
