What a charming photo!

I grew these last year and was stunned by them. What a statement they make!

Thanks! You're right kniphofia, they do make quite a statement in the garden. Everyone who sees them are amazed, (even my non-gardening friends) at these giants in my garden. I just love them and am always on the look out for different cultivars. I usually have seeds on hand to share.
