Kniphofia uvaria 'Royal Standard'

Royal Standard, a hybrid kniphofia, or Red Hot Poker, is a favorite of the hummingbirds. Its mid-summer bloom stalks reach 36-48î in height, displaying orange and yellow blooms that make a perfect focal point for any perennial grouping. Requires full sun for best flowering effect; likes humus but does well in sandy soils; tolerates rabbits, drought. Will not come true from seed. Established clumps should not be divided; if necessary to reduce size, remove rhizomes from around the edges. *Deer Resistant* Attracts: Hummingbirds
