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. Good for Firescaping. Plant with Cotula and ornamental grasses.
