Kniphofia Popsicle Series* - Redhot Poker

A new breed of pokers with a more compact habit and attractive, narrow dark green grassy foliage that remains all season. The added bonus is they rebloom from summer into fall. Great plants for a hot dry location, they require full sun in any well-drained soil. Zone: 6

Rudbeckia f. var. s. 'Little Gold Star' - Black-Eyed Susan

Terrific introduction that forms a bushy, short clump of rich green leaves topped by numerous starburst-shaped flowers; golden yellow with a dark brown eye. Very floriferous blooming from midsummer into early fall. Fantastic in containers or planted en mass. Give full sun to light shade. Height: 40-50cm Spread: 50cm Zone: 4
