Description

Height x Spread : 90cm x 60cm

Chunky, vivid yellow almost lime green pokers stand proudly to attention on bronzed stems above clumps of evergreen narrow foliage.

Not one of your shy, retiring Red Hot Poker types, 'Dorset Sentry' adds a real acid punch and verticality to a midsummer sunny, well-drained border.  It combines brilliantly with other jewel colours such as strong purples, pinks and blues, its silhouette and form contrasting well with Dahlia, Achillea and Crocosmia.  In spring neaten up the plant by removing faded stems and leaves.  It needs full sun and a fertile, moisture-retentive yet free-draining soil to thrive.  

 Available for Mail Order from April - September
