Red Hot Pokers
Early fireworks in the garden
These Kniphofia have struggled a bit and were under threat of a downgrade - relegation to a hidden corner - but in the last couple of week have decided to put on quite a show. They have earned a stay of execution as a result!
I believe it is Kniphofia caulescens with wider leaves and stem not unlike a leek. They may not flower for long but while they have it has been quite spectacular.
