Kniphofia hirsute Fire Dance
By Avid gardener
from Star, ID
About Me Avid Gardener
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.
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.
