Kniphofia - Red Hot Pokers

Kniphofias, commonly known as Torch Lilies or Red Hot Pokers, always make a bold statement in the garden with their brilliant show of bright-colored, dense, erect spikes resembling glowing pokers or torches. Blooming from late spring to early fall, depending on the varieties, their stately flowers are noted for their long-lasting display of reds, oranges, yellows or creams, adding eye-catching splashes of color to any border. Kniphofias change color as the flower matures, exhibiting the deepest shades in bud and fading as the flower opens, resulting in a bicolor look. Kniphofias have a wide range of flowering times. If you are a fan of Kniphofias, you may want to select different varieties to extend the pleasure of admiring their lovely blooms from May through October!
