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!

Burning Bush plants that I ordered and received
The Burning Bush plants that I ordered arrived quickly and in good shape. They are growing fast and look great! I want to order many more of these soon.
i bought four bushes and planted as instructed .They are growing well .Cant wait till they are in full bloom. Thank you
I was originally skeptical of mail order plant companies as I’ve had previously bad experiences. So originally I placed a small order to see how things go. This company hasn’t disappointed! I’ve now placed 3 large orders and every single plant arrived in excellent shape and have all taken off from scrubs to trees. Customer service has been excellent in answering my questions by being quick to response and detailed.
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.
