Kniphofia [Red Hot Poker]

Genus: Kniphofia.

Species: Kniphofia uvaria.

Planted 2005. About 8 plants from a friend. Grew very quickly. In 2006 had to move 2 because too big for their position. These divided into about 12 plants which I put in lower garden near pond. Grew very tall too, flower stalks over 6 ft. They really like it here.
