Design Ideas: Burning Bush is usually planted as a single specimen or in a grove. It can make a good, natural hedge with changes in every season. Use to brighten dark corners in architecture or in groves of coniferous evergreens to add brilliance and a spot of seasonal color. Excellent for wild garden accent and in habitat planting that needs color.

Easy to grow; adapts to most average, well-drained soils. Avoid poorly-drained, soggy soils. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency, once established. Apply fertilizer in early spring. For best fall color, site in full sun, avoid drought stress, and do not heavily prune.

History

Euonuymus alatus was named burning bush for the similarity of its fiery foliage to the the Old Testament story of Moses.
