This late-flowering South African red hot poker, native to coastal marshes, garner the attention at our September Open Garden Days. 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. For us, the 3' flower spikes of Kniphofia rooperi emerge in August and continue through October.
