Hot red poker- Kniphofia

Hot red poker- Kniphofia (Kniphofia)

It is an interesting plant but I am not sure if I like it or not. It blooms only for a short time and the lover part is long gone before the upper part opens. (sort of like a gladiolus) And mine never gets hot red but rather salmon color.

Its quite pretty even now... but i understand about the lower part being delayed..

It is blooming upward Kaustubh, so the top is delayed. the bottom blooms first and slowly the upper flowers will open.
