Kniphofia rooperi is a late-flowering South African red hot poker, native to coastal marshes with a couple of traits that set it apart from more commonly grown red hot pokers. Instead of a typical poker-like flower head, Kniphofia rooperi boasts a broad, squatty head, each exquisitely patterned yellow at the bottom and bright orange all the way to the top...a hummingbird delight. Secondly, the 3' flower spikes of Kniphofia rooperi emerge in August and continue through October....long after the spring/early summer-flowering forms have faded into obscurity. If winter temperatures don't drop below 20 F, it also flowers again in March.
