Burning Bush Growing and Maintenance Tips

Best grown in full sun and fertile soils, this plant will tolerate various conditions, except wet, poorly drained sites. Will tolerate almost full shade, but with potential reduction in fall colour. Prune in late winter, as burning bush flushes new growth for only about two weeks in the spring.
