Flame red is the best seller for fall color. The fiery autumn foliage of the Burning Bush makes it an excellent landscape plant... and it really draws attention when planted in rows. In summer, the cooling blue-green colored leaves are welcoming and lush.

Planted as a hedge, they can create a river of soothing green in warm weather and a fabulous trail of fire for autumn excitement. You'll look forward to fall just to enjoy the amazing color. You'll see a buzz of excitement from your neighbors when they comment on how beautiful your yard looks with these vibrant shrubs.

The Burning Bush has fantastic drought tolerance once established, and easily adapts to a variety of soils and climate conditions. Homeowners in almost any area of the country can have great success in growing the burning bush in their yard. Burning Bush grows rather quickly and makes a beautiful statement in almost any yard.

Grows best in part shade to full sun. For that burst of flame in fall, be sure to plant the shrubs where they get full sun for most of the day. They love living in the shade, but the leaves will not be able to turn red without a massive dose of sunshine on a daily basis.

Great planted in masses and do well in geometric planting designs such as hedges and flower garden windbreaks.

Order your own row of Burning Bushes and enjoy the bright scarlet color in the fall!

My burning bush has been well established for years and it has always been in full sun. I use it to hide the hose and recycle bins at the side of my home. It also provides a screen for my bathroom window and it gives a beautiful display of color in the fall. The birds also enjoy this bush too.

Great quality plant
I ordered these plants a few months ago, and they arrived in perfect tact and were packed beautifully. I had no issues planting them and they have been thriving since. The only advice I have is the sizing. They list 3 gallon and to be honest it would have been more helpful to say how tall the plant was in feet. I guess I was expecting something a little bigger. Other than that, I would recommend buying plants from this site

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Burning Bush

Burning Bush Planting Diretions Plant your Burning Bush in an area that receives full to partial sunlight. Although your Bushing Bush prefers full sunlight, it will tolerate shade. Don't plant your Burning Bush in a low are of your yard that collects standing water. Place your Burning Bushes about 3 feet apart to create a hedge.

Burning bushes prefer acidic soil, but will adapt to your natural soil even if it's sandy or heavy in clay as long as it's well draining. Let your soil dry to the touch down to about 2 inches in between waterings. Once your soil is dry give your Burning Bush a deep watering at the base.

Fertilize your Burning Bush at the beginning of every Spring and Mid Summer with an acidic fertilizer for an acid loving shrub. Every summer the leaves on your burning bush will be a blue green color, until the Fall when they turn a vibrant fiery red color.

If planting as a hedge row how far apart should I plant the bushes?
Janet E on May 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I planted my four that I bought last year on 6-foot centers. After one year, the foliage is only 4-foot apart. The plants are approx. 3-foot tall now. I hope they will be touching each other at 5-foot tall. You may want to plant a little closer if you want more density in the hedge. I planted a year ago and they had a beautiful red glow on the small plants last fall. We had a terrible raw cold windy winter and they came through nicely. I'm in eastern Nebraska. Best of luck and enjoy!

when to plant ?
A shopper on Oct 19, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Technically you can plant any time you can dig. If you're planting in the winter time (assuming the ground isn't frozen) the plant is dormant anyway, and won't "waken" until spring.
Do you guarantee your plants? As in, if I purchase them today and plant them as soon as they arrive, will you guarantee they will be alive come Spring? Be comforted in know I will plant them according to your instructions.

Will trees and shrubs look like the photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos. Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Trimming & Pruning

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You!

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
