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.

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. It tolerates a wide range of soils (with the exception of wet, poorly-drained soil).

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.

  • Hardy and adaptable
