Fall Flowering Red Hot Poker


Brilliant orange and gold tropical flowers in November and December!  Waist high spikes of flowers amazing with Camellias for Thanksgiving.  

We’ve worked with this species for over 20 years, testing and evaluating.  In most winters, it’s stunning.  In our garden, even in an exposed, sunny area, it flowers well.  But remember even places slightly cooler than Columbia or Augusta it may need a protected spot so flowers don’t get burned by cold snaps.

Kniphofia sarmentosa ‘Valdosta’

Evergreen clumps of scrappy leaves to 3 feet tall. 

Stunning flowers in November and December.  In some winters, we even have flowers into January. 

Plant in full sun.  But try to find a protected spot.  Early winter frost can burn flowers.  

There are two very similar selections of this species, both made about the same time.  Jenks made one called ‘Riverbanks’ but this similar one is from Ted Stephens, selected in Georgia.  

We ship one gallon fully rooted plants with an over all height including pot of 18 “.
