The flowers of red hot poker (Kniphofia) varieties stand out in a landscape, even from across the street. Pyromania Solar Flare Red Hot Poker adds bright yellow drama to the stunning appearance of the big, slender bloom stalks. Since it's drought tolerant, even in full sun, you can plant this 3-foot high Kniphofia along a sidewalk, driveway, fence or wall. Use the plant in containers, too, or anywhere you want some height and summer flowers the color of the sun.

Kniphofias grow in zones 5 through 9 in full sun and can take poor to fertile soil. Their flowers appear from early to late summer and last for some time. Once the flowers fade, birds flock to the seeds and the grass-like foliage that remains, forming a cascading clump of up to 36 inches around. Deer and rabbits usually leave the plants alone. Pyromania Solar Flare Red Hot Poker also is salt tolerant, so feel free to plant it near where you must salt winter ice.

Pyromania Solar Flare Red Hot Poker Care

It's easy to leave the faded flower stalks on the plant, or you can cut a few blooming stalks to bring inside and feature in a fresh flower arrangement. For regular care, just trim the leaves in spring to help the plant form new growth. Plant your Pyromania Solar Flare Red Hot Poker in soil that drains well to prevent root rot. Although it is drought tolerant, your kniphofia might benefit from a little extra water during peak heat and summer bloom.

Pyromania Solar Flare Red Hot Poker Spacing

Grow a stunning Pyromania Solar Flare Red Hot Poker as a focal plant, especially against a contrasting wall or shrub. Space plants between 2 and 2.5 feet apart from center when planting as rows or borders.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
