Firespire® and Fire King™ Musclewood
Carpinus caroliniana ‘J.N. Upright’ and ‘J.N. Select A’ PPAF
|These two selected natives from Mike Yanny of JN Plant Selections are unique amongst Carpinus selections with their bright red fall foliage. Firespire was featured in the Nursery Management Green Guide and the recent American Nurseryman new plant issue. Firespire is part of UpShoot’s current media kit.
Fire King will be introduced in 2017 starting with the summer trade shows. We’ll be focusing on these two trees in both our trade and consumer marketing efforts in the coming year.
Contact us today if interested in growing or trialing either or both of these selected natives. Graft wood is limited so place your wood order today for receipt in Jan/Feb; details on ordering below.
Don’t just take our word for it:
“I have grown Carpinus caroliniana ‘J.N. Upright’ Firespire® for 10 years
Its fiery red-orange autumn foliage coloration rates as the best of the columnar hornbeams, so I consider Firespire® to be an ideal choice for use as a small-scale columnar tree.”
