Kniphofia Poco Citron, also known as Red Hot Poker Poco Citron, is a delightful herbaceous perennial that brings vibrant colour to the garden. Here are some key details about this striking plant:

  • Appearance: The flower spikes of Kniphofia Poco Citron range from cool lime-green to lemon, canary yellow, and butter-cream as they mature. A single spike can display all these shades, creating a rich and colourful display. The plant grows in a clump-forming habit, with upright, stiff, grassy leaves.

  • Height: It reaches a height of approximately 14-20 inches (35-50 cm) and spreads about 14 inches (35 cm) wide.

  • Blooming Season: Kniphofia Poco Citron blooms in succession from mid-summer to early fall. The flower spikes rise above the tufted clump of leaves.

  • Growing Conditions:

    • Sun: Full sun is ideal for this plant.
    • Soil: It thrives in sandy soil enriched with humus. However, any deep, moist but well-drained soil will suffice.
    • Protection: While it enjoys a sturdy stem, some protection from strong winds is recommended.
    • Drought Tolerance: It can tolerate drought conditions.
    • Wildlife Attraction: Kniphofias attract butterflies and hummingbirds.
  • Maintenance Tips:

    • Crown Depth: Never plant the crown deeper than 3 inches (7 cm).
    • Winter Care: Remove spent flower spikes to encourage more blooms and protect the crowns in winter (especially in hardiness zone 6). The foliage tends to suffer during winter months.
    • Propagation: Divide established clumps in late spring.
  • Garden Uses:

    • Kniphofia Poco Citron is great for:
      • Perennial borders
      • Small gardens
      • Containers
    • It pairs well with other summer-blooming perennials like Achillea (yarrows), Helenium Autumnal (sneezeweed), Hemerocallis (daylilies), and Rudbeckia (coneflowers).

Remember, this exotic Red Hot Poker will draw the attention of all onlookers with its vibrant blooms! 🌺🔥🍋
