Kniphofia fluviatilis

Common name river poker
Family asphodelaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers yellow/orange
Size 30"
Light sun
Cultural notes moist soil

South African species forming clumps of grassy foliage, with spikes of yellow/orange inflorescences on straight stalks above. It occurs naturally in running water or soggy areas, so the best place for it in our garden may be the boggy areas in our pond. So far, just a couple of tiny seedlings.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
