Burning Bush (tree form) is a deciduous tree, selected and trained to grow in a small tree-like form with the primary plant grafted high atop a standard. Its average texture blends into the landscape, but can be balanced by one or two finer or coarser trees or shrubs for an effective composition.
This is a relatively low maintenance tree, and can be pruned at anytime. It has no significant negative characteristics.
Planting & Growing
Burning Bush (tree form) will grow to be about 7 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 5 feet, easily maintained to desired size with pruning. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 40 years or more.
This tree performs well in both full sun and part shade. It is very adaptable to both dry and moist locations, and should do just fine under average home landscape conditions. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America.
