It's vibrant red leaf color in the fall is deserving of many superlatives and whether used as a single specimen or a hedge, it is a spectacular sight.
Earlier in the season, it provides a rich green backdrop for other more colorful plants. However in the fall when earlier blooms have faded, the dwarf Burning Bush takes the spotlight.
SUN OR SHADE: Full sun is needed to achieve the best red coloration, but it will tolerate some shade and produce lighter colors.
SIZE: The dwarf version of the Burning Bush will reach 6- to 8-feet tall and 8- to 10-feet wide in our climate.
SEE IT: At the Evergreen Arboretum & Gardens, 145 Alverson Blvd., Everett, or take a virtual photo tour at www.evergreenarboretum.com. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
