One of the Most Colorful Shrubs Ever Developed

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!

These plants take three years before they turn red. Personal experience. I watered them at planting, left them alone, and in 3 years they did turn red. Hope this helps.

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

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.

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 area 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.

Barry B on Aug 17, 2018
Colorful flowering. My husband loves hedge-type plants, I do not. To compromise, I ordered flowering hedge that will still remain green throughout the winter months, yet give me the colorful flowers that I want.

My bush is losing it color and there no leaves on the bush?
Charlene R on Aug 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Burning bushes need to be in the Sun, so it may not be getting enough sun which may be a cause of it losing color. One of the first things you should check on it to see if there is any insect activity on the plant that may be causing problems. Your bush should be watered when the soil gets dry at about 1/2-1" down, then a good slow soaking that wets the soil to about 12" down should be adequate for a week at a time. A mulch of shredded bark (not hardwood chips) will help retain moisture.
