This wonderful 1980s introduction was selected by John Metcalf of Four Seasons Nursery in the UK. Compared to the larger pokers, the narrow green leaves on this winner of the RHS (Royal Horticultural Society) Award of Garden Merit make a smallish, 2' wide clump. Starting in June (NC), the 3' tall, narrow flower stalks end in ivory flowers with an orange top...a very unusual color combination in pokers...elegantly stunning. Be sure to stick one of these pokers up your...I mean, IN your garden!

A spectacular selection of poker that produces towering spikes of flowers that rise to nearly 4' tall with a beautiful change of colors. Each spike opens with flowers that are toffee brown before changing to coral and finally soft cream. A robust perennial for full sun to light shade in rich well drained soil with occasional summer water. Flowers appear for six weeks in late June to early August. They are cherished by hummingbirds at our nursery. It forms rosettes of spikey leaves eventually to several feet across. Blooms increase as the clump increases. An excellent long lived perennial.
