How to Plant RED HOT POKER Seeds

Sow seed 6-8 weeks before planting out, use a deep container to avoid disturbing the tap root. Barely cover. Light aids germination. Kept at 70-75° F., germination is in 21-28 days. Can direct sow into prepared seed beds, in groups of 3-4 seeds spaced 1-1.5 feet apart. Thin to the strongest plant.

Comments: Full sun or part shade, moderate to regular water. Will tolerate wet soils in summer, in winter soil must be well-drained. Flowers open from bottom to top, changing colors as they age. Hummingbirds love them and they are excellent for cutting. Tie foliage together in fall where winter temperatures drop below 0° F. Flowers the first year when started early. Plants are deer and rabbit resistant; heat tolerant.
