Kniphofia habitat question

livingdedgrrl(z5 OH)November 13, 2011

Hello, everyone! I have recently moved from Ohio to Tempe, AZ. I have an large bed of Kniphofia that I would like to bring with me. I understand it is from S. Africa, and I was wondering if this plant would do well in the environment here.

Thanks in advance!

Hey Jessica,

I'd say yes, but, for an experienced opinion, why don't you ask in the Gardening in Arizona Forum (linked below). They would be much more familiar with conditions in your area. Also, you might get more interest, since this forum is about propagation.

As for your hardiness zone, you are correct; the Arbor Day hardiness zone map (generally more up-to-date than the USDA map) puts Tempe in zone 9. Tempe's "official" hardiness zone (from the out-of-date USDA system) is 8b.

Here is a link that might be useful: Gardening in Arizona
