keikei is a baby plant that forms on the bloom stem.  i think the origin of
the term is Hawaiian, and it is most commonly used by orchid growers.  i
know irises will very rarely produce them.  some irids commonly produce
them.  but this was my first time to see one on a Kniphofia... so I was
surprised!
