Poker

I expected these red hot pokers ("flamenco", a dwarf cv. from Monrovia) to have more densely packed flower spikes. And to be more red hot. Thus illustrating the dangers of relying on nursery descriptions without being able to see the flowers for yourself.

Still, they ended up combining quite nicely with the Satureja mexicana, and the hummingbirds have already been checking them out before any of the flowers even opened, which was the original idea.
