Outstanding fall color! The fiery autumn foliage of the burning bush makes it an excellent landscape choice. Plant among spring and summer bloomers for a jolt of color in fall. In summer, the cooling blue-green colored leaves are welcoming and lush, making it great for hedges, borders or specimen plantings. Burning bush is drought tolerant once established, and very low maintenance. Plant in full sun to part shade, though the more sun soaked days will bring out the brightest of reds in the fall.
