Kniphofia 'Pineapple Popsicle'
Poker - 2 litres
Kniphofia 'Pineapple Popsicle' is one of a series of pokers recently bred in America for exceptional hardiness, compactness and prolific flowering over a long period. Sturdy flower spikes of luminous greenish buds open to cream or pale yellow flowers, the colour of the flesh of fresh pineapple, from July to October, above a clump of slender, grassy leaves. Provides a vertical accent in borders, fitting in well with Crocosmias, Rudbeckias and Heleniums. Attractive to bees and good as a cut flower.
Height and spread 65cm by 60cm (26in x 24in). Thrives in a warm, sheltered site in moist but well drained, humus rich soil in sun. Mulching the plants protects them from winter wet and helps to conserve moisture in summer.
Bee and butterfly friendly.
