It is amazing how quickly the garden changes. A few weeks ago the garden was all cool blues and purples. Now it is ablaze in oranges, yellows and reds. It seems appropriate given how hot it has been! I am especially loving my Hot Poker Plant (kniphofia), lilies and butterfly weed. This is my second year with the kniphofia and they have already expanded (I started with 3 plants). I think I may divide them this fall. It looks like they should be pretty easy to divide, just dig up the clump and chop or saw away, similar to a daylily. I love when I can divide plants (and use a saw). Free plants make my day!
Do you have any “hot” plants that you love in your garden?
