This kniphofia is one of the latest ones to flower giving a lovely punch of colour to the autumn border.The large spherical heads, slighly flattened at the top, are a bright redy/orange and yellow on stout  four to four and a half foot tall stems . Like all Kniphofias it is hugely attractive to bees ( see second photo) Kniphofia rooperi has the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
