Dwarf Burning Bush Only Getting Leaves Around the Bottom

janjiskra1971 added on May 16, 2015 | Answered

Why is my dwarf burning bush only getting leaves around the bottom? A few years ago we had a harsh winter and rabbits ate some of the stems. They never came back fully. Will they come back or should we dig up and plant New?

If the upper branches are brittle, then they are dead and will not come back. If this is the case, you have two choices. You can wait for the bottom to regrow up (which could take years) or replace the plant. Most people, understandably, choose to replace the plant.
