Burning Bush is excellent for background, as a screen, or an accent against evergreen plants. The bush forms a dense twiggy top which makes it great for shaping up and trimming. Bright rich red fall color makes a great addition in the landscape bed. It is an awesome center piece in a garden bed or makes a perfect screen between neighbors or open land. Don't let the word "dwarf" fool you - these plants get up to 10' tall and wide!
