40-48" tall x 24-36" wide, brilliant 'Alcazar' grows up to 4 feet tall, displaying its signature bright red and yellow flower-spikes. Known as Red Hot Poker or Torch Lily, its flowers are red when freshly-opened and fade to yellow as they age, recalling a candle flame.
'Alcazar' is an excellent choice for creating focal points at the back of the border or in the center of island beds, where their showy blooms will draw in butterflies and hummingbirds.
Growing Tip: An easy to grow plant, Red Hot Poker is from South Africa and requires full sun and sharp-draining soil. While its used to rocky and poor soils, it won't tolerate wet, mushy sites with standing water.
