It is a great addition to any garden or landscape and adds a bright pop of colour to any space.

Care Guide

  • Watering: Water deeply once a week, or when the soil is dry to the touch. Avoid overwatering, as Red Hot Pokers prefer well-drained so
  • Maintenance: Divide the plant every 3-4 years to prevent overcrowding.
  • Pruning: Cut back the foliage in late fall or early spring to promote new growth.
  • (Optional):Fertilize using a balanced fertilizer once in early spring and once in mid-summer.
