    Great photo! We visited the UBC garden last week when we were in Vancouver–because of this web site, it was a “must see” on my list of things to visit.
    While at the garden, we saw red-hot poker plants and they were my husband’s favorite.

    And where do I acquire such a beautiful specimen?

    Phillip (this pic is from last year May 12, while today’s was from this year on June 2):

    K Baron – I’d prefer questions about acquiring plants go on the forums in the Sourcing Plants section.

    What a beautiful and artistic photo! Nice job Daniel 🙂 I particularly enjoy macro photos such as this one that give otherwise unseen, amazing details.

    K Baron – I don’t know about this variant (and Daniel, I hope you don’t mind me mentioning this on your gorgeous page here!), but seeds for lesser “red-hot pokers” are widely available from many vendors.

    Susan, I edited your comment to say “many vendors” instead of the nursery you specified + other vendors.
