Kniphofia

Kniphofia (nip-hoh-feee-uh) Red Hot Poker, Torch Lily; Asphodelaceae Family. Mostly hardy perennials; slender leaves and pyramidal spires of yellow and red, down-turned, tubular flowers all summer. Flower stems 3 to 4 feet high. Well drained soil and some shade in southern zones are needed . 

A sun lover that likes it hot and dry, Kniphofia can be grown in any well-drained soil, though a good supply of water is appreciated when blooming. Prefers rich, organic, medium-moisture, well-drained soils; and is intolerant of wet, heavy soils.

Kniphofia will benefit by having its leaf tips trimmed in the spring to stimulate healthy, new growth. In zones 5 and 6, the foliage can be mulched or tied together over the crown of the plant in the fall to keep water from settling on the crown and freezing.

Attributes: border plant, containers, cut flower, drought and salt tolerant. Attracts butterflies and hummingbirds. Deer and rabbit resistant.
