Burning Bush 'Compactus'

In stock


Burning Bush has long been a popular landscape choice with its dark green leaves turning a brilliant red in fall, and this compact form has a denser habit than the species. Birds adore the small red berries that form and persist into winter. Great for mass plantings, hedges and privacy screening or as a specimen plant. Best fall color is achieved if planted in full sun, however it will tolerate some shade. Can be maintained at a smaller size with regular pruning.
