Red hot poker


By Raketje

Red hot poker (Kniphofia uvaria (Red Hot Poker) 'Flamenco')

Although I'd sown some seeds of a mix of Thompson & Morgan hybrid Kniphofia, we also bought 3 at a local boot sale, to our surprise this one started flowering not soon after I'd planted it. I guess you get lucky sometimes!
