Kniphofia nelsonii in UBC’s Alpine Garden
From today until my vacation ends in mid-August, I’m abbreviating the commentary accompanying the photographs. This image was taken in UBC’s Alpine Garden.
Commonly known as red-hot pokers or torch lilies, you can read more about this African genus of plants here: Kniphofia via the South African National Biodiversity Institute.

Nice bit of lichen on the background rock… maybe a future subject?
Via con dios and party on, dude. What does abbrev.commentary compare with what you will see and all the BPD joy that will come to all of us when you return!
Lovely picture, full of vibrant color. Very pleasing to the eye.
That Lichen is bright in the background. The Red Hot poker is beautiful. Thanks for the pic, have a great vacation
What a great photo! All muted shades of greens and greys . . . and then . . . SPLAT! SPLAT! SPLAT! . . . dozens of splashes of scarlet! It gives a kind of 3-D effect.
