ECF - Odd Orange Flower Edition

Going to pick my daughter up the other day from her penultimate da of 4th grdae, I noticed these flowers in front of the school. I'd seen them before when I dropped her off but the shape of them, seen from a distance, appeared to be not yet bloomed. Seen up close they turned out to be blooming and really interesting so, disregarding the rain, I stopped to take a picture. I have no idea what they are but they sure are cool looking.

Have a great weekend!

One of their common names is "Red Hot Poker" and they are great for hummingbirds.

Go back after they have gone to seed and liberate a few seeds. They sure are eye catching.

They look so beautiful and luscious and refreshing. I hope your weekend matches.

Seems like lots of people in our area have a patch of them. I really love the ones that are distinctly red, orange and yellow from top to bottom.
