Kniphofia 'Backdraft' PPAF (25) Bare Root Plants
Common Name: Red Hot Poker
A 'backdraft' happens when fire explodes with the presence of new oxygen, and this Kniphofia definitely explodes onto the scene of your garden. Very wide flower spikes bear intense reddish orange flowers that open to peachy yellow for a two-tone effect.
A brand new genus for Proven Winners® Perennials! Members of the PYROMANIA™ Collection are a rainbow of hot colors including red, orange, and yellow. The spiky flowers and upright habit gives a very unique drama to your landscape, with rebloom extending the color late into the season. Grass-like foliage provides textural contrast to bold-leaved perennials, like Hibiscus. These tropical looking plants are hardy to either zone 5b or 6, if you provide protection.
