Large, Ornamental Bush with Fiery Color

Chicago Fire is a variety of Burning Bush that is valued for its brilliant color.  Use a few for a screen or hedge, or just one as an eye-catching accent plant.

Your Chicago Fire Burning Bush will provide color to your yard that is so brilliant it’s sure to catch your eye from almost anywhere in your yard.  Resplendent in vibrant green with mahogany tones in the summer, and displaying brilliant fiery foliage in the fall, Chicago Fire really knows how to put on a show.

Even during the winter months your Chicago fire provides interest, its corky stems a stand-out amid other plantings.  As an added bonus, red fruits appear in the fall and persist, opening to expose small, orange seeds that are quite ornamental in appearance. 

Chicago Fire is an adaptable, hardy shrub and grows to 10 feet tall with an 8 foot spread.  It tolerates a wide range of soils (with the exception of wet, poorly-drained soil). 

City or urban environments are no problem either, and it performs well in various levels of sun or shade.  Chicago Fire is a fast-growing shrub, so you won’t have to wait long for results.  It maintains a natural, pleasing shape but can also withstand heavy pruning.

Your Chicago Fire is certainly a Burning Bush with a lot to offer.  With little or no attention from you, the addition of a Chicago Fire to your landscape ensures year-round interest and a fiery splash of color sure to dazzle your friends and neighbors.

Full bushes Review by Betsy
I love how fast they grow, their height & how full they are but my chicago fire burning bushes never seem to get quite the bright red color pictured. I bought 3 that are under 2 pecan trees in my front yard. I'm wondering if they just get too much shade. They look great, just not real red in the fall.
Chicago Fire Burning Bush Review by Ray T.
The name "Chicago Fire" describes this plant very well. It really is a bright red!
Fall Leaf color Review by Lori
I have a burning bush that is in full sun and 1 that is in partial shade. The one that is in full sun is a little brighter in the fall. I do love the fall color.
Hardiness Review by Jeff in CO
I have an almost mature Chicago Fire burning bush and it just glows in the fall. It is hardy too, as I had a large branch from an ash tree fall on it. Did a little pruning and it is now back to form.
