The Burning Bush is also known as the Winged Euonymus. It is a member of the Euonymus family and it's name is Euonymus Alatus. You can plant these in the shade, but you will find the fall color is more attractive and brilliant if you plant in full sun.

Burning Bush is Easy to Care For

The Burning Bush is easy to care for. The key is to keep the roots from getting soggy or wet. Make sure the soil is well drained and don't fertilize too much. If you experience a long dry period be sure and water otherwise they can withstand hot dry areas.

When planting the burning bush you can keep the plants 5 feet apart. If you are planning on making a hedge with the plants then plant them only 2 feet between each. The hedge you will have to keep sheared to look good.

Also Known as Winged Euonymus

When trimming hedges leave at least half of the new growth. Trim and prune in early spring before new growth begins. The Winged Euonymus has such a bright red color that you will want to plant them in a location conducive to viewing. Your neighbors will compliment you on the beauty of these plants.

Burning bushes are ideal plants for planting next to a foundation wall. There structure allows for good screening of other objects. Their bright red colors make them an excellent specimen plant.

The burning bush is also known as the Winged Euonymus because of the way the stems intertwine to look like wings. Plant the burning bush in a sunny area of your yard. It can tolerate shade but will not be as brilliant a shade of red. Keep the roots dry but it can grow in almost any soil type.
