Details

30-36" tall x 30-36" wide. A striking South African wildflower, this species is native to the grassy slopes of the Drakensberg Mountains where it grows to form huge colonies of plants, often in marshy sites. With robust rosettes of grassy blue foliage, it blooms with large melon-orange and yellow flower spikes in mid-summer. Seed for this strain was collected at about 9,000 ft. elevation from the huge field of plants growing in Tiffindell. Keep adequately watered as 'Tiffindell Cold Hardy' dislikes dry soil. Compost enriched garden loam. Plant with Cotula and ornamental grasses.

Comments about High Country Gardens Kniphofia caulescens Tiffindel Cold Hardy:

If you like the flowers of the closely related aloes then you'll love kniphoias. I've planted three species/varieties of this and for foliage this wins hands down. The thing I like best about it is that it tolerates cold damp winters well even when most of the plant is buried under old leaves-though I would recommend keeping the leaves to a minimum.

Q & A

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
