3 Seasons of Brilliant Color

Red and Orange new growth, Pale Lavender blooms, and Chartreuse mature foliage.
One look at 'Spring Torch' and you can see that Heather has come a long way from its humble beginnings. This gorgeous new variety puts out beautiful color practically all season long, starting with spring foliage that buds out a fiery red-orange color and matures to a primrose yellow, followed by a mid- to late-summer show of lavender-colored flowerspikes and finally finishing up with deep red foliage in the fall. We highly recommend this tireless little entertainer along driveways, paths, or any place where you want a colorful row of hedges.

'Spring Torch' is an alluring garden presence, irresistible to butterflies and hummingbirds and, once established, indifferent to dry spells. The flowers are fabulous for fresh or dried arrangements, and the foliage is so striking -- like a torch melting away the dreary cold of winter!

Expect 'Spring Torch' to reach just 18 inches high and wide in the garden or container. Do not miss the color show from this incredible presence! Zones 5 to 8.
