If you're concerned about heat, I haven't found that to be an issue. In 
New Mexico at 5000 feet,  I have several alnifolia varieties and I find 
them to be particularly tolerant of intense dry heat in situations where 
most other plants just wither. The same plants also do fine at my 7000 
ft location and they bear fruit very dependably.

I believe that 'Regent' is one such that can deal with the heat.  I grow A. canadensis, A. laevis, A. stolonifera, and hybrids of these, but I'd really like to grow A. alnifolia.  It's untrue to claim they will not thrive in my region because NYC (zone 7a) has many successful, thriving plantings of it (I just don't know what varieties they plant).
