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!

I love this company!
My burning bushes came well protected in the shipping containers and were in beautiful shape upon sight! I bought 5 of them and they are all thriving well here in Kentucky! I would highly recommend this company to anyone!
Burning Bush review
I received my Bush about three weeks ago. It came well packaged and very health. I planted the Bush and it has already grown about two inches. Very pleased with my Bush and will purchase from this company again.
My bush is adorable but is only about a foot high. It is very healthy looking except for the fact that the rabbits are eating it so we had to enclose it. I am just disappointed in the very small size. It will take years to have an impact in my yard.
Very pleased customer.
The bushes arrived packed well and in very good condition. I was very impressed with doing business with fast-growing trees. So far so good. Bushes are doing well.
This bush is still in the maturing stage but is doing well. I have another burning bush bought locally and am hoping this one will grow to be as beautiful as the other one. Love the fiery red color in the fall.
Planting & Care
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.
