A classic border plant, Red Hot Pokers take some beating in the summer borders! The elegant spikes are produced in a good range of colour combinations, inlcuding unusual pastel shades. They last for many years and thrive in most conditions. Flowers June - September. Height 36in.

I am really excited to see of this plant blooms next year, it is a new one for me in 2005
