Planting and Care Tips for Burning Bush
Like Lilacs, Burning Bushes are easy to grow in full sun. They prefer moist, well drained soil, but they are very adaptable to most soils and soil conditions across a wide range of the United States.
Plant in full sunlight for the brightest red fall color. Shade will mute the fall colors...which is almost a crime, isn't it?
Track your package right to your doorstep. Open your box right away and give your new plants a nice, long drink of water.
Dig your hole twice as wide as the root ball, but only as deep. They won't like waterlogged soil...so please don't plant Burning Bush too deeply.
Add Nature Hills Root Booster in the planting hole for life-long support. Then, press the backfill soil around your plant and water well to eliminate air pockets at the root zone.
Established Burning Bush does show drought tolerance, but we do recommend that you provide a consistent schedule of water for the very best results. Mulch these important landscape assets to keep the ground nice and cool; but pull it back away from touching the stems.
Consider growing your Burning Bush as a natural hedge, as the lovely form looks formal. Shearing a Burning Bush will also mute the fall color, but it will not harm the shrub.
Give them plenty of room to achieve the Mature Height and Mature Spread on the Plant Highlights. Like other arching shrubs like Spirea or Ninebark, Burning Bushes look best when they are allowed to fully develop.
Burning Bush usually does not require much pruning. Rejuvenate your shrubs every few years by cutting out the older branches at ground level immediately after it finishes blooming.
For older shrubs, consider cutting them back to the ground every few decades. They'll send out new shoots the following year and delight you once again!
