What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Great Design Plant: Red-Hot Poker
Distinguishing traits. Grasslike clumps of long, narrow foliage produce stems topped with colorful clustered flowers in summer. The colors and density of the flowers give them an almost glowing appearance and very accurately portray the common names. With shades ranging from orange to yellow, coral to red, and even green to near white, color options are expansive. Heights range from 1½ to 6 feet tall, depending on variety. Most species of Kniphofia are evergreen, but some slightly deciduous varieties will resprout in early summer after laying dormant over winter.Shown here: Kniphofia 'Ember Glow', zones 6 to 9
Frank Organ added this to Bright Plants for Flower Beds That Wow
Kniphofia. Tall, bright and imposing, kniphofias lend height, vibrancy and drama to any garden. This variety, Kniphofia 'Ember Glow', produces tall spikes of red flower buds that open to orange and fade to yellow above clumps of evergreen, strap-like leaves. They also look great against a background of ornamental grasses.Planting note: Kniphofia is an easy and undemanding plant to grow. It prefers a position in full sun and though it will survive with a low rainfall, it flowers better when watered regularly.
