Smaller dimensions make this Red Hot Poker better suited to smaller gardens than its taller kin. Coral red and yellow flower spikes are produced all summer over thick clumps of arching blue-green foliage.

A gorgeous sight in the late summer perennial border. Good companion plant for daylilies. Enjoy an explosion of color when planted in drifts.
