Winning Color
Flamboyant orange torches deliver a stacked deck of winning color to any sunny spot. The saturated orange hues are joined by wispy yellow stamens as they peek out from the blossoms as the stalk progressively opens from bottom to top. Kniphofia provide a strong vertical accent above thick clumps of arching blue-green foliage. A gorgeous sight in the late summer perennial border. Kniphofia Jokerís Wild is a welcome attraction for beneficial pollinators. With winter protection, it could be hardy to zone 5.
