Commonly called Red Hot Poker or Torch Lily for their tall flower spikes. These South Africa natives offer tremendous garden value by combining grass-like foliage with tall flower scapes. An excellent perennial for the middle of the border.

A "backdraft" happens when fire explodes with the presence of new oxygen, and this Kniphofia definitely explodes onto the scene of your garden. Very wide flower spikes bear intense reddish orange flowers that open to peachy yellow for a two-tone effect.
