Burning Bush Plants
Q.

Invasive plants

I just read an article on your site about the virtues of burning bush. Burning bush has becoming an extremely invasive plant on our property and in Illinois. Our state department of natural resources would agree. There are good native alternatives that will provide great fall color and are attractive to our native birds, insects and butterflies.

Of coarse you should abide by your regions list of invasive plants. Many gardeners have great success with Burning Bush plants with no issues of them self seeding and invading.
I am one of those gardeners, I have never even had a seeding pop up around my two Burning Bushes.
