Are you familiar with this orange cone flower?
Do you know the name of this interesting plant with the orange-yellow cone flower and long thin leaves ? Each little orange flower in the inflorescence looks like a little tube, and is located on top of the cone, and the bottom of the cone is yellow with yellow stamens (and a brown anther). I saw it in Southern France.
I am not sure if all flower opens up and becomes yellow later.
Please, help with this flower identification.
Yes, it is Kniphofia, possibly Kniphofia uvaria, also called Tritoma,Knofflers, Red hot poker, Torch lily, or Poker plant due to the shape and color of its inflorescence (in the family Asphodelaceae). It is native to Africa.
In some parts of Australia it is now regarded as an environmental weed.
