Fire Ball® Burning Bush
This Compact Burning Bush is Very Cold Hardy
When you need a shot of red foliage in your garden in the fall, burning bush is your go-to plant. The Burning Bush Fire Ball (Euonymus alatus 'Fire Ball') starts off brilliant green in the spring. In will blend well with your other foundation or shrub border plantings all summer, too. But come fall, watch out! This shrub turns an eye-catching rust-red and becomes the stand-out star of the garden.
A Proven Winners selection, this is an improved form of compact burning bush with tighter branches and better stem hardiness. This means that Fire Ball resists stem die back even in the harshest winters, unlike most other Euonymus.
Fire Ball is a more compact version of the typical burning bush, too. Instead of the 10’ height of most euonymus, Fire Ball only reaches 7’ tall – less if you prune it well. This helps Fire Ball fit into most any garden.
Plant this Burning Bush amidst spring and summer flowering shrubs for a jolt of color just as the flowers of the others are fading. You – and your neighbors – will be happy you did!
