|Hopleys Orange Bush Cinquefoil enjoys partial to full sun and shows off deep-orange flowers. This spring flowering shrub grows into a rounded 2-by-2-foot plant. Others to consider include Rosa Golden Slippers (Golden Slippers rose) produces bright orange flowers; orange Butterfly Bush; Summersweet (Clethra alnifolia) and Helianthemum nummularium 'Single Yellow' (Yellow Rockrose). I'll bet you'll find even more selections at your local garden center. Enjoy your new garden!
