My red hot pokers have done very well this year. Last night I was looking at them and lady bugs are on the bottom of the flowering parts. Is this normal or do I need to remove the lady bugs? there are 3 to 4 on each one.

Ladybugs are good for the garden so don't chase them away. They are probably feeding on aphids or other small insects and I'd consider them to be beneficial. Just enjoy having them in your garden. They won't harm your plants.
