Kniphofia uvaria is commonly known as a Red Hot Poker, Torch Lily or sometimes a Tritoma
Depending on the variety, the flame colored flower spikes will reach 2-5 feet in height.
The flower's coloring may range from ivory and orange to coral red.
We planted three Red Hot Poker plants two years ago, and this is the first time we actually got to see the blooms, before the deer got to them. Now that we have put up the deer netting, we are hoping for more flowers.
Red Hot Pokers are one of the favorite flowers for hummingbirds.
