Product Description

One of the Most Colorful Shrubs Ever Developed

Why Burning Bushes?

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, giving you interest month after month.

You'll look forward to the fall just to enjoy the amazing color of the Burning Bush. Especially since the Burning Bush has fantastic drought tolerance once established and easily adapts to a variety of soils and climate conditions.

So, the Burning Bush is virtually carefree. No matter where you plant, it thrives. Simply ensure it gets a lot of sun and watch the show begin! The Burning Bush shines when it's planted in masses and does well in geometric planting designs, such as hedges and flower garden windbreaks.

Why is Better

You won’t find a healthier, better developed Burning Bush – because we’ve planted, grown and shipped your Burning Bush with meticulous care, you get a hassle-free shrub that’s ready to thrive in your landscape and burst with color and growth quickly.

In fact, when you buy our larger sizes, you can get the explosive color of the Burning Bush as soon as the first season in your garden.

Order your own row of Burning Bushes and enjoy the bright scarlet color in the fall. Plants with color like this don't last long...get your Burning Bush today!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Plant your Burning Bush in an area that receives full to partial sunlight (4 to 6 hours of sunlight per day on average). Although your Bushing Bush prefers full sunlight, it will tolerate shade.

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. Dig a hole that's large enough to accommodate your Burning Bush's root ball, place your shrub, and backfill the soil. Finally, mulch the surrounding soil and water.

2. Watering: Let your surrounding soil dry to the touch down to about 2 inches. Once your soil is dry in this area, give your Burning Bush a deep watering at the base.

3. Fertilizing: Fertilize your Burning Bush at the beginning of every spring and in the middle of summer with an acidic fertilizer.

Great value with great expectations!

I was concerned about ordering plants online and shipping but the price was better than what I found around town and not much availability around town adn really wanted to do the project now. So after reading some reviews I decided to take the risk. And it was worth it!! The processing time was great, the shipping was great (minus the Fedex man that can not read which way is up but luckily I was home to get it before it sat too long sideways), the packaging was perfect as no products were damaged in transport and the price was great!!!

Click and be happy

Fast growing trees makes big promises on their website, and totally delivers on them. I am more than a little impressed. And also in disbelief at how my shrubs sat in a box on a truck in this heat for over 5 days and showed up looking glorious. I recently ordered a tree from what turned out to be an inferior company and it arrived with six of the eight branches broken and none left to replace it. I also ordered a honeycrisp tree and when I unboxed it, it looked like I had just brought the tree home from a nice Nursery. Thank you fast growing trees! I will be back.

I bought 4 of them less than a month ago. They came packages very well, but were just bare branches. This photo is less then a month after planting! I’m so happy with them, I bought 4 more. This company has the best landscaping plants I have ever purchased and their customer service is excellent! Burning Bush Review
