Nancy's Red Torch Flower

Kniphofia 'Nancy's Red'

Tropical flair for the waterwise garden! This tough perennial explodes with large, coral red summer blooms. Clusters of brick-red buds rise above clumps of narrow grass-green leaves, opening to reveal a hint of yellow on the throat and petal margins. This hummingbird magnet also makes a great cut flower. Herbaceous.
