garden update

I have this Kniphofia uvaria
for a few years now but never gave me flower...
This year thanks to my wonderful home made fertilizer
(from my wormy compost ) 
it doesn't stop making me new flowers. 

I find the colours wonderful with this almost fluorescent orange... 

it also grow very fast 
in 2 days the stem take 30cm hight !
a bit of camille, this plant is so easy 
it seed it one year and now it's comming back every year, self seeded
I thougt this plant with little flower is gonna died quickly 
but since I have it from march it doesn't stop flowering ! 
ok I had an attack of aphid
that needed butal black soap covering and dead end cutting,
but now it is back on tracks !
