Tips On Growing Kniphofia  (Red Hot Poker)

Kniphofia  (Red Hot Poker) is a genus of showy perennials native to southern Africa, with most species found in the Republic of South Africa.

Preferred growing conditions:

  • Red Hot Pokers thrive in a wide range of soils including clay. Plant them in full sun.
  • Mulch with common mulching materials in arid climates.
  • Water regularly the first growing season to establish the plants. Once established, they only need occasional deep soaking in hot, dry weather.
  • Deadhead the plants after blooming to keep the plants looking tidy, but they generally will not come back into bloom.
  • Fertilize lightly in the fall with a half and half blend of Yum Yum Mix and good quality compost.

Special comments:

  • These perennials are highly attractive to hummingbirds.
  • Kniphofia will re-seed themselves and should be deadheaded if volunteer plants are not wanted.
  • Plants are easily divided in early to mid-spring if they get too large for their space, or if new plants are needed.

            These don't try to take over the yard though they do spread slowly. Thje birds love them. Even after the birds have had their fill, the plant remains attractive

              Q & A

              Suggested Companion Plants:

              USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

              To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

              • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
              • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

              Find Your Planting Zone:

              Enter your Zip Code to find your USDA Planting Zone
