Burning Bush - Compacta

Enjoy Brilliant Fall Color

The Compacta Burning Bush is not a petite, modest shrub as its name implies. It can grow to be a striking 10 feet tall! Easily pruned to stay smaller it is one of the best shrubs on earth if you are looking for stunning fall color.

A popular and versatile shrub the Burning Bush would be wonderful as a hedge or screen but can hold its own as an ornamental or foundation plant.

Spring to summer your Burning Bush will have rich, green leaves up to 3 inches long. In the spring small, yellow green flowers appear adding interest to this extremely popular shrub.

The Burning Bush really lives up to its name in the fall though. With spectacular fall color in reds that are so intense they nearly glow, it is no wonder this shrub is in such high demand. 

Adding to its impressive fall display, the Burning Bush will also show off its plentiful and ornamental brilliant red fruit.Trim the Burning Bush for a bright garden border, or allow it to reach its full growth as a showy focal point in your yard. 

If you are looking for dramatic fall color you will not be disappointed with the Burning Bush. The bright red color will be a beacon in the otherwise drab landscape of the fall season.

Sun needed Review by Delano
I learned that my compacta burning bushes need sun to get their most brilliant color. Wish I had planted them in more sunny area.
Blazing Red Review by joan_516
Just as red as any other burning bush but not quite as large. For my yard this dwarf version the Compacta burning bush is perfect.
Great shape Review by phil
I like the way this shrub grows into a natural round shape.There is no need for pruning.
Burning Bush dying Review by Irene
<P>With great anticipation, we planted 3 dwarf burning bushes last summer in a full sun area of the garden. The area has sandy soil, and is well drained. Our first disappointment occurred in the fall because our leaves remained a strong green colour. We presume that the bush needs to establish itself better. But, this spring 2 of the plants appeared to be struggling, they started losing leaves, new growth branches curled down and one bush looks almost dead. What's happening? Any advice?</P><P><STRONG>NHN Response:</STRONG> Sorry, this section is for reviewing products only. Please telephone our sales department at 888-864.7663.
