Did you know?

Being native to Africa, the Kniphofia is very good at outsmarting the heat. While many other flowers wilt and die under the burning sun, this hothead remains, making it a perfect flower in your summer garden (or in-house, in a vase).

Re-cut and place in water with flower food for an extended vase life.
