Plant details

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. Kniphofia 'Ice Queen' is one of the palest red hot pokers available. It bears tall, green-tipped white  flower spikes between June and October.

Grow Kniphofia 'Ice Queen' in moist but well-drained soil in full sun. Team with hot-coloured flowers, and plants such as Euphorbia mellifera that enjoy similar growing conditions.
