Kniphofia uvaria ‘Echo Rojo’

Reblooming Torchlily

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.300.810

Also known as Pokers, these are easy to grow in the garden so long as the soil is well-drained, particularly in winter. This selection was bred to rebloom. Plants form a mound of grassy, evergreen leaves with taller stems bearing spikes of bottlebrush blooms in a deep reddish-orange colour. Stems are wonderful for cutting. Drought tolerant, once established. Attractive to hummingbirds. Part of a series developed by Richard Saul; the ‘Echo’ in the name referring to the repeat-flowering nature of these plants. USPP#22791: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
