You can plant it this week or wait until spring. If fall planting, water it during dry spells even after leaf drop. Mulch the ground over the rootball with 2-4 inches. Do not let mulch contact the shrub's bark. Make sure you give burning bush the room it needs. "Dwarf" and "compact" are relative terms and can be misleading. Dwarf burning bush easily grows to 8-10 ft. It will have the richest fall color if planted in full sun.
