I’m moving soon from central Illinois to central California and I would love to take some Burning Bush trimmings to plant there. Will Burning Bush tolerate California climate?

California spans USDA zones 5-11. This means that burning bush will grow in every part of California. The question becomes whether the area that you are moving is in the upper portion of that range. If this dips into zones 8-10, the shrub will become highly invasive, and introducing something like this to this particular region will be very irresponsible and potentially illegal depending on local regulations.

To answer your question, yes. It will tolerate the move. Sometimes a little too well.
