Kniphofia (Red Hot Poker) ‘Banana Popsicle’ – 2 litre tall
More widely known as Red Hot Pokers, this old fashioned favourite perennial is loved by insects and birds alike. They have been grown throughout the UK for a very long time, but it has only just been realised that they naturally grow on the edges and banks of water. If they are in a moist planting situation they will assume a new vibrancy and repeat flower with vigour and gusto.
Banana Popsicle is a tiny yellow variety, growing to around 15 inches tall, it is so very sweet. The grass-like foliage of this plant make it wonderfully versatile for all styles of garden, whilst its colourful flowers will add little yellow pops of colour.
