Red Hot Pokers

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Stuart & Watts Real Estate WV0026375

 

 



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.

Hi Dale, thank you!

Rob, Aimee and you will enjoy them immensely.

Carie, I know John wrote a post on poker plants as well.

Gary, thanks and I agree they surely look like pokers.

Ellen, you are welcome.

Joni, I'm waiting for the hummingbirds to show up.

Coming over from John's blog to see the Red Hot Pokers in West Virgina; I don't think I've ever seen them in Texas.
