Enjoy “Look At Me!” Fall Color

One of the most highly sought after colors for fall foliage is flaming, fire-engine red. You will find it on some trees and a few berries, but it’s not that easy to find on a shrub.

The Compacta Burning Bush (Euonymus alatus 'Compactus') is a shrub that proudly wears its scarlet color and lives up to its ‘burning bush’ moniker. It absolutely glows in the garden.

A popular and versatile shrub, the Burning Bush is wonderful as a full-sized hedge or screen. It can hold its own as an ornamental or foundation plant.

It takes well to shearing and can be kept at a petite size. Best of all? Prune Compacta Burning Bush once in May, and you are done for the year! One and done, just an annual pruning, what a time-saver!

Spring to summer, your Burning Bush will have rich, green leaves up to 3 inches long. In the spring small, yellow green flowers add interest. It drops its leaves in the winter, but has an interesting branch structure that stands out in the winter months.

Once it is established in your garden, it is remarkably drought tolerant. It adapts well to a variety of soils and climates. It thrives in most areas of the United States with little care.

Even though the Burning Bush ‘Compacta’ will grow happily in a semi-shady area, it needs whole days of full sun to develop those amazing red leaves in the fall, so choose your site carefully. Make sure it’s someplace where you and your neighbors can enjoy its dramatic display.
