'Jordan' is a brilliant sight in Spring as it flushes out; a eye catching display of vibrant yellows and oranges. However, our specimen has suffered in the full sun here in Georgia. Many websites describe 'Jordan' as thriving in full sun, so it may do well in other parts of the USA. We plan to replant ours in part shade.

Probably its better attribute is the improved cold hardiness over other selections like 'Orange Dream'.
