Product Description

With spectacular spears of yellow, orange and red blooms that are produced continuously from June to October, this hybrid red-hot poker puts on a fiery show of bright flowers that burst like rockets from a base of compact, grass-like leaves to fill your garden with colour.

A fully hardy perennial, ‘Flamenco Mix’ really brightens up the garden as other plants begin to fade and being compact is ideal for smaller gardens or even patio pots.

Easy to grow and a terrific drought-tolerant garden plant, red hot pokers are an excellent addition to city and coastal gardens and look great in the middle of wildlife borders and gravel gardens - as well as traditional cottage-garden style plantings.

Unlike older varieties of poker, Flamenco has delightful, strap-like leaves that remains tidy so does not spoil the display and you don't need to worry about staking as it’s a dwarf variety, and is perfect in borders, pots and containers - great if you really don't have the time to be faffing about.

Adored by butterflies and bees for their nectar and flower arrangers for their style - red hot pokers make lovely cut flowers too!

Supplied as an established plant in a 2L pot ready for planting out. Flowers June – September with a height and spread of 50cm (20in) x 60cm (30in)
