Garden Plant: Fire Dance Red Hot Poker
Product Description: Fire Dance Red Hot Poker
Spikes of Red and Yellow Kniphofia Fire Dance, Kniphofia hirsuta ‘ Fire Dance’, creates a glow that will last from early through late summer.
This variety, developed by Jelitto Seeds, is only 20″ tall and wide, making it the perfect size for small spaces and containers.
Coral red and yellow flower spikes grow atop a thick clump of narrow, arching, blue-green foliage.
‘ Fire Dance’ is one of the shortest, prettiest and most reliably cold-hardy species in the genus.
Though small in stature, ‘ Fire Dance’ is very cold hardy and easily grown in average and compost-enriched garden soils.
Drought resistant, low-growing, this fiery plant could be used in the rock garden or the front of the border.
The tough leaves are ignored by deer and rabbits, but the brightly colored, tubular flowers are adored by hummingbirds and butterflies.
If you have a city garden and space is an issue, this Red Hot Poker is perfect.
It is a bright and charming plant, and the flowers contrast with the blue green foliage which is low growing and arched.
