The name of this newer torch lily cultivar sums it up nicely, but what will cause you to hit the brakes and do a full stop for this perennial is its unusual size - a mere 14-16". An easily manageable height makes dwarf Traffic Lights the ideal kniphofia for gardeners who have limited space, want to try torch lilies in containers and/or seek a petite variety to use in front the front of the border. Attractive bluish-green strappy foliage accent the coral red, amber and pistachio green on the blossoms beautifully.
