A spectacular showcase of bright red color

Offering deep green leaves throughout the summer before transitioning to vibrant red foliage in the fall, the Dwarf Burning Bush is truly a majestic shrub to see! As a gardener, you’ll enjoy watching the magic unfold each year as the foliage shifts to its fiery red color.

Supports a healthy ecosystem by attracting birds and wildlife

Delicate green flowers that pop up in late spring transform into purplish berries in fall. These tiny fruits attract a variety of birds, diversifying and enriching the ecosystem found in your backyard!

Low-maintenance beauty

An extremely hardy option for backyard gardening, the Dwarf Burning Bush requires very little upkeep. Occasional pruning can help maintain a manicured shape, but the natural growth of this shrub results in a beautiful unkempt look that appeals to a more natural aesthetic.

Versatile—great for border hedging, privacy screens or color contrast

The robust nature of this shrub allows it to perform wonderfully as border hedging, creating a natural privacy screen. It can also be used to create continuous, yearlong color balance, serving as a deep green backdrop for springtime bloomers while providing accent color in the fall.

If you’re looking for a stunning shrub, add the Dwarf Burning Bush into your landscape plan!
