  1. It’s also known as a torch lily or tritoma. For the Romans and taxonomists in the house, it’s a kniphofia uvaria. We had these in my backyard when I was a kid and I think my friends and I had another name for the little red buds, rocket-somethings-or-other, but it’s all blurry now.

    I think they’re totally paleolithic. The dinosaurs, cavemen and Sarah Palin all walked among them 5000 years ago when the world was created.
