Plant of the Week: Kniphofia

Plant of the Week: Kniphofia

You’ll spot right away how these spectacular South African plants came to be called red hot pokers. The ramrod-straight spires rising above handsome evergreen strappy leaves are topped with a magnificent bottle brush of a flower in shades of red, orange or yellow – looking every bit as if it were on fire.


Despite its exotic looks kniphofia is easy to grow, drought-tolerant and hardy down to at least -9°C as long as the soil is free-draining. Look out for butterscotch-coloured ‘Tawny Glow’, dainty ‘Little Maid’ in palest primrose (ideal for containers) and the classic red hot poker, K. rooperi, its huge 1.2m tall flowers topped with blazing red-orange.

Guard against wind rock

Cut back tall deciduous shrubs like roses, mallow (Lavatera) and Buddleja davidii, reducing their height by about a third. Otherwise the wind can catch over-tall growth, pushing the plant about and loosening the roots. Cut back to a leaf joint, and mulch well afterwards to see them through winter.
