Kinky Friday – Pokers!

kinky kniphofiaHappy Friday everyone!

Every now and then, I’m going to give you a little Kinky Friday treat – honouring the twisted, contorted stems that help make my creations so unique, and the kinkier the better!

Today’s twisted treat is Kniphofia – also known as ‘pokers’ (oooh-err!) they grace our gardens and vases from March right through to around August. When young, they are usually golden yellow toned, deepening to this beautiful orange as they mature.

Contrary to this image, there just a single bloom on each stem, and stems can easily reach over 60cm. Try them en masse in a tall sleek glass vase – the perfect warm pop of colour for a contemporary interior.
