Hello!
I am a new member and live in southern Ontario. I love to spend time in the garden, but it has been soooo hot here! I wonder if anyone call tell me why my red hot poker will not bloom? Had it 2 years now and never seen a bloom!

Hello! wavey

I'm Jenn. Glad ya found the forum! Stick around and ask questions, help people out with mysteries, or just chat a while. There are some others on the forum from Canada.

I looked for some info for you. I thought for sure that I saw another post about the Red Hot Poker somewhere on the forum, but I couldn't find it in my rush to get back to you. Here is a link to some info that is on The Garden Helper.

Your post might get moved to another area of the forum so that more people can see your question....one of the moderators will do that if need be.

Enjoy the forum!!

This is the first year I planted Red Hot Poker.
Always saw them in the catalogs but never took a shot until this year. I hope I planted in the right spot because I only have leaves so far, but I know its early in Northern zone 6.

This info has been a great help to me.
THANKS
