Redhot pokers or torch lilies for New Year’s Day look to be a distinct possibility for us in Savannah, Ga. Because of our coastal location I could never promise this for you, unless you live in a mild climate. What I can suggest is that if you love torch lilies in the late spring and early summer you may want to give the fall-blooming species a try in your garden.
Botanically speaking I am referring to Kniphofia rooperi, which is a cold hardy to zero and perennial from zones 7-10. The common names range from Rooper’s redhot poker to East Cape poker and the fall blooming torch lily. No matter what you call it, it is a great plant.
