What is the bronze stemmed plant with red flowers in this picture? Behind the heleniums (not the cannas).

Many thanks in anticipation!

    It looks like Lobelia cardinalis 'Queen Victoria'

    Lovely photoimage

    It's a photo off the net - wish my garden looked like this! One day perhaps. So I'm afraid I don't know the red hot poker variety

    Philippa if you're looking for a good yellow kniphofia, take a look at K. Percy's Pride. Pic of it on my Bressingham thread of sunday/Monday this week. Gorgeous plant.
