A must have shrub in any mixed shrub border as this plant has an abundance of good features. Start off with a terrific rounded to slightly vase shaped shrub that holds its shape with little pruning (prune mostly to maintain size although in my garden I do not prune at all). Small yellow-green flowers appear in late spring followed by medium to dark green foliage all summer. The foliage then turns a brilliant scarlet in fall if planted in full sun. Winter brings small red berries and brown corky-ridged bark for a true four season appeal. I have Burning Bush planted in several gardens as an accent plant but it would work as well in mass plantings if you have room or as a hedge.
