Kniphofia 'Tetbury Torch'PBR
Poker - 3 litres
Kniphofia 'Tetbury Torch' is an excellent recently bred variety of poker producing spikes of glowing apricot-yellow flowers opening from warm orange buds, on bronze stems, over a clump of slender, dark green deciduous leaves, from June to September. 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 90cm by 60cm (36in 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.
