Q.Growth on burning bush

Zone montrose, colorado zone 5-6 | Anonymous added on June 20, 2020 | Answered

My burning bush is just 2 ft tall. The leaves are sparse compared to the height of the shrub. Is this normal? I’ve been feeding it every spring but the growth is so slow. I live in zone 5-6 and it’s planted in full sun. Any advise you can give is much appreciated.

This article describes a variety that grows extremely slowly. "'Rudy Haag’ is a slow growing diminutive form of the bush that will get only 5 feet tall in 15 years."
