Firespike is one of the few red tubular flowers to bloom in autumn and is very popular with hummingbirds and all kinds of butterflies. Unfortunately, white-tailed deer love firespike too, and will eat the leaves. Defoliated plants will grow new leaves, but if the deer persist, the plant eventually will be killed.

Common name: Firespike.
Color: Red
Bloom time: Late summer through winter.
Height: About 6 feet.
Difficulty level: Easy.

Planting & Care
Give firespikes plenty of room to grow when you plant them. Space the small bushes 24 to 36 inches apart. They’ll fill in this space in a few years, creating a single wall of glossy green leaves and spikes of flaming blooms.

Sunlight: Full sun to partial shade.

Soil: Well-drained soil.

Water: Keep the soil moist. Once established it can tolerate draught but You should water even established plants if it hasn t rained for more than two or three weeks.

Temprature: Hardiness upto 40 degrees F.

Fertilizer: A balanced fertilizer (10-10-5) or equivalent can be used monthly from June through october.

Care:
  • If frost or freezing temperatures threaten, cover the firespike bushes to protect them.
  • If they do get frozen, it will kill off the growth above ground, but it will usually grow back in the spring as soon as the soil warms.
  • Firespike plant care also includes keeping them from taking over your flower beds.
  • When the branches get too long or unruly, prune them back.
  • Do this two or three times a year for the best looking plants.
