Kniphofia 'Lady Luck' PP32261 (25) Bare Root Plants
Common Name: Red Hot Poker
The tallest Kniphofia we offer, 'Lady Luck' lends itself well to create dramatic height in a limited footprint. A mid to late season bloomer, this plant produces chartreuse buds that open to white flowers over top of a very large clump of foliage. It's jam-packed with flower spikes, so you know you'll enjoy a prolonged display in summer.
Tested for hardiness in our Michigan zone 6, heavy snowfall winters, and could be hardier with winter mulch and protection.
Commonly called Red Hot Poker or Torch Lily for their tall flower spikes. These South Africa natives offer tremendous garden value by combining grass-like foliage with tall flower scapes. An excellent perennial for the middle of the border.
Kniphofia is a sun lover that likes it hot and dry, though a good supply of water is appreciated when blooming. It can be grown in any well-drained soil.
Kniphofia is evergreen in mild regions and herbaceous in cooler zones. In both areas, it will benefit by having its leaf tips trimmed in the spring to stimulate healthy, new growth. In zones 4-6, the foliage can be tied up over the crown of the plant in the fall to exclude water from settling there and freezing, which would be deadly.
