'Scarlet Spires' is a mainstay of gardens across the country.  Our new 'Elk Orange Spires'  is destined to become one as well.  It's large flowers are an intense orange, a standout color.  Careful breeding has produced a plant that is stronger, better branched and less prone to wind damage as well.

New for 2019.
