Irresistible to hummingbirds, the creamy yellow blooms shoot toward the sky out of a dark green, grassy clumps in summer.

It’s no surprise that Red Hot Pokers give an exotic look to the landscape, much different from anything in our native flora. They come from Africa. The hardier types usually hail from regions far from the equator, such as South Africa. Pineapple Popsicle is the result of a controlled breeding program in Canby, Oregon, which cross-pollinated two unnamed 'parents' and voilà - the Pineapple Popsicle was born!

How To Plant Pineapple Popsicle Dwarf Hot Poker
Pineapple Popsicle Dwarf Hot Poker enjoys a sunny site that stays somewhat moist but never soggy. Make sure the soil drains freely and water regularly in the summer. Constantly wet soil, especially in the wintertime will spell trouble.
How To Water
Water deeply and consistently during the first growing season. Once established, it will require less water but in extreme heat, be sure to supplement.
How To Fertilize
Incorporate Elements Starter Plant food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant food granular form on an annual basis each late fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.
How To Prune
To encourage reblooming, prune the faded flowers. In fall, let the old foliage remain throughout the cold months, resisting the urge to clean it up before warm weather returns in the spring. When you do cut it back, leave a few inches standing—don’t shear it clear back to the ground.
