Details

18" tall x 15-18" wide. Native to the high Drakensberg Mountains of South Africa, this is one of the shortest, prettiest and most reliably cold-hardy species in the genus. I have found 'Fire Dance' to be much more compatible in smaller perennial plantings than its much larger relatives. Easily grown in average and compost-enriched garden soils. This is an improved cultivar with lovely coral-red and yellow bi-color flower spikes. (seed propagated).

      Comments about High Country Gardens Kniphofia hirsuta Fire Dance:

      I planted 2 in a west-facing bed close to the sidewalk in early summer of 2015 after sitting in their pots for longer than I'd like to admit. The smaller one struggled for a while, wasn't sure it would survive, but eventually perked up and produced 1 beautiful blossom. The larger one has done very well, has not bloomed yet, but I have confidence that it will bloom next year. It works very well with the Corsican violets that I combined it with. I'll be planting more Kniphofia hirsute next to my rocky stream bed due to its smaller size. It looks good when not in bloom as well as after blooming.

      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).
