Burning bush is a deciduous shrub that has been very popular in North American landscaping—perhaps too popular. The dense, multi-stemmed, rounded shrub gets its common name from the transformation of its medium-green elliptical leaves into brilliant red fall foliage; the red-orange berries that arrive in the fall provide additional decorative value. Tiny yellow-green flowers bloom on the plant in the late spring, though they aren’t very showy. This native of eastern Asia has become widely naturalized in North America, so it should be used thoughtfully, with care taken not to allow its spread outside the garden.


Best planted in the fall or spring from a container-grown nursery plant, burning bush grows at a moderate pace, adding about a foot of growth per year. If properly maintained, it will survive for decades.
