Kniphofia Aurea (red hot poker)
The VIVID display of the winter blooming Red Hot Pokers simply can't be missed. This hardy genus of perennials perform well in our Australian conditions. Kniphofia Aureus is a striking Autumn blooming species, very tall in height to 2.2m. The blooms are popular cut flowers, and attract a wide array of bird and insect life.
Best grown in the full sun to part shade, Kniphofia are supplied as field grown divisions. The plants are large enough to bloom, but as they have been separated for winter sales, it is unlikely they will bloom until next Winter.
Re-plant as soon as possible, leaving the foliage out of the ground and fully covering the hard root system. Water in, fertilise with pretty much whatever you have and away you go. Once established they will survive (even thrive) off whatever natural rainfall you receive.
