Red hot pokers are instantly recognisable. Their arching clumps of long, narrow foliage form a large mound, from the centre of which upright flower spikes bear the characteristic glowing red and orange flowers. The leaves of this variety die off in winter, but rather than clearing them away in autumn it is a good idea to leave them until spring, to protect the crowns for winter - at least for the first year or two while plants get well established. Team red hot pokers with other hot coloured flowers, and plants such as Euphorbia mellifera that enjoy similar growing conditions.
