Kniphofia linearifolia, also known as common marsh poker, is a striking perennial plant with tall poker-shaped green to yellow flowers. The plant, which can grow up to 1.5 m in height, is well-suited for marshy areas, streambanks, and mountainous grasslands. It attracts nectar-feeding birds and insects, and while it has no recorded medicinal uses, the flowers of some related species are reportedly used as a minor food. Kniphofia linearifolia is easy to grow in rich soil, open sunny areas, or partial shade, and its bright-colored flowers make it a vibrant choice for garden borders or cut flowers.
