Statuesque Vertical Presence
Bicolor torches of this tall garden sentinel keep watch over any sunny garden on strong stems. Kniphofia Hot and Cold is from the Pyromania™ Series bred for excellent cold hardiness with extended bloom time. Showy spikes emerge orange turning creamy white from the bottom up. Kniphofia provide a strong vertical accent above thick clumps of arching blue-green foliage. A gorgeous sight in the late summer perennial border. A good companion plant for Dayliles.

Kniphofia General Information

Kniphofia Plant Care

Leave foliage for winter protection and cut back to 3" in spring. Divide in spring. Apply general purpose fertilizer in spring before new growth begins.
