Growth of burning bush

Zone 32567 | goodson.sandy1120 added on July 11, 2017 | Answered

We planted a burning bush in April. We live in Crestview,Fl. It is thriving but is not growing. We have fertilized it but seems to not have helped. Is there anything to do to encourage growth. I thought they were fast growing scrubs. Thank you.

Shrubs and trees generally spend their first year in the ground establishing their roots. So while you may not see much above ground growth, there is likely lots of below ground growth. Which is what you want. A healthy root system will ensure long lived plants.

But don't worry, in a few months they will change their focus to above ground growth and they will just take off.
