Kniphofia uvaria originates from the Cape Province of South Africa and has been introduced into many parts of the world. It is also known as Tritoma or Red Hot Poker due to the shape and color of its inflorescence which can grow up to 1.52 m in height. There are many varieties of torch lily, and the flowers are red, orange, and yellow. This picture was taken at Ooty Flower Show 2013.

Gladiolus 'Fado' (Sword Lily) is particularly showy with its spikes of creamy-white blossoms adorned with bright rosy-pink at their petal tips. Each flower spike counts over 12 blooms and rises among erect, narrow, deep-green sword-shaped leaves. Spectacular on its own, in the summer garden or in a vase. Since the flowers open from the bottom of the spike up, sword-lilies provide a long-lasting floral display, each flowering spike blooming for up to two weeks.
