Red Hot Poker, Torch Lily, Vuurpyl (Afrikaans) – take your pick of common names but they all boil down to the same thing: Kniphofia

47 out of the 750 species of Kniphofia occur in South Africa, mostly along the eastern coast, but many a garden and housing estate around Pretoria/Johannesburg will have a few on show at this time of year.

I’m still undergoing some colour therapy – finding it amongst my archives if I can’t find it or see it when we are out and about 😉
