How do you propagate Firespike?


Kimberly Bailey   |   Member since 2008  |  10+ Answers Submitted  |  ✔ Verified

Propagation : Firespike is easy to propagate from softwood cuttings. It is sometimes possible (if you are lucky) to cut a branch and just stick it in the ground where you want a new plant. The cuttings you root in the spring should bloom by fall. It can also be propagated from seeds or by division.

Subsequently, one may also ask, how do you grow a Firespike?

Planting and Care Plants should be spaced 24 to 36 inches apart. Although it will grow in part shade or part sun, place firespike in full sun for best blooming. Once established, firespike is moderately drought tolerant. A hard freeze can kill the above-ground growth, but the plant will typically return in the spring.

Also Know, is Firespike poisonous? (1)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. No other references found that indicate this species is toxic or poisonous. Do not ingest or burn any part of plant.

Just so, how do you prune a Firespike plant?

Add top soil or organic peat humus, mixed together with composted cow manure, to the hole when you plant. Give the plant a hard pruning in spring for size, then let it grow up to form a nice, natural shape. This shrub can get a bit "floppy" around the edges so cut off side branches now and then if needed.
