Kniphofia, also known as Red Hot Poker, Poker plant, Tritoma, or Torch Lily, is a unique perennial plant that features bright orange-yellow flowers. The flowers grow out from a single stalk, pointing outwards or downwards. Kniphofia love rich soil and sun to part sun, with plenty of water and fertilizer during their growing period.
These plants do not divide well so only divide them over time when the shoots seem over crowded.
Definitely plant these in your garden if you would like to attract hummingbirds, as the Kniphofia are nectar-rich.
