Burning Bush Shrub

Anonymous added on October 25, 2017 | Answered

I have a burning bush that does not get vibrant color in the fall. I trim it yearly, in the spring. Is there some kind of fertilizer I can use to improve the color?

Thank you for sending us your gardening question. Burning bush will develop its full color only when planted in full sun, defined as 6+ hours. When planted in partial sun (either part east, or part west sun) the bush may show some, to no fall color - that spectacular red-orange that we all love. If location is the problem for your bush receiving sufficient sunlight, you may consider relocating it.
