Is looks like a Red Hot Poker but more tropical. Very nice.

Hi Dianne - I agree with Cal on the Red Hot Poker plant (Kniphofia) . I tried some one year but it didn't do too well.

Yes, Dianne, it is red hot poker. They are grown around here in yards but are not from USA. They are gorgeous!

Very nice photo!

hI Jean and Cal and Kamaly I have now looked this flower up on the Australian site and we apparently also call it Red Hot Poker, thank you all so much for your help, this is where Panoramio is so great, we are learning all the time about so many different places, plants, animals etc. etc. Thanks again, Dianne

Oops, I mean Gnarly, and where's my little maid outfit?

diannemcd on September 3, 2008

I guess it would be a little early just yet, you will need at least another 3 - 4 hrs. on P. You will have to find your own little maid outfit.....

Dianne, I just uploaded a photo that I took back at the end of June. These flowers are probably the biggest bunch of Red Hot Pepperthat I have seen around here and they looked very healthy. They were growing at the water gardens near Franklin, NC.
