How To Plant Dwarf Burning Bush

Dwarf Burning Bush love to bask in the sun and catch those rays—for at least 6 hours. For more vibrant colors, planting in full sun is recommended, too much shade can transform those leaves to a faded, pinkish hue in the fall. Burning Bushes are highly adaptable to a wide variety of soil types and can thrive in anything from sand to clay. It is preferred that soil is slightly moist and well-drained.

How To Water

For the first few months after planting your Burning Bush, water quite often. Then, you can reduce it to about the equivalent of one inch of rainfall per week. Once a Burning Bush is established they can be considered drought-tolerant.

How To Fertilize

Incorporate Elements Starter Plant Food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant food granular form on an annual basis each late fall. If planting in the fall, use Elements fertilizer while planting and start your regular annual fertilizing the following fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established as it gives your tree the nutrients it needs to produce lush new growth for the following spring.

How To Prune

Burning bushes can be known for overgrowing their space so complete rejuvenation of your Burning Bush is recommended. Severely cutting back the plant promotes the longevity and allows new growth to have more space. Pruning your Burning Bush should be completed early spring or late winter.
