Why the Rudy Haag Burning Bush (True Dwarf)?

Burning bush is an understatement with Rudy Haag’s fiery red foliage in the fall! A perfectly petite shrub as it is a true dwarf growing only 3-5 feet tall. Fitting all garden sizes and can be a bit of a show-off accent plant as dainty yellow flowers accompany even the gorgeous green leaves in the spring. This slow-growing stunner has also been referred to as “Winged Spindle Tree” for its distinctive Corky-winged stems that become more noticeable in winter after the leaves drop. Rudy Haag Burning Bush grew in popularity in the landscaping scene for its hardy growth and year-round interest and versatility in the garden as a sturdy screen or hedge mixed with evergreens or a stand-alone beauty in garden borders. It may be pint-sized, but it will unfold in colors from spring to fall!

Rudy Haag Burning Bush is native to the forests and woodlands of eastern Russia, Japan, China, and Korea and was introduced to America around 1860 as an ornamental shrub. Burning Bush has become invasive in a few areas around the U.S., seeding itself into wild spaces and potentially crowding out native plants. Though grown carefully, Rudy Haag Burning Bush will thrive and beautify your garden beds!

How To Plant

Part of Rudy Haag Burning Bush's popularity is due to the fact that it is so easy to grow. This adaptable Accent will grow in sun or shade and in just about any type of soil that isn't soggy. Wet feet spell trouble. Ideally, it would prefer light shade and soil that is barely moist at all times.

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. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.
