It's tough to tell how common this cultivar is in the Twin Cities - most tend to be near the house on either the sides or backyard. There is a large speciment at the Minnesota Arboretum.

One of my favorites of the Northern Light series. Large orange balls of flowers. Slow growing and inconspicuous the rest of the year.
