Q.Will Burning Bush Grow in East Volusia County, FL?
I would like to plant the burning bush but I am getting conflicting information as to my zone. I am told it will not grow properly in Zone 9. When checking my growing zone, I receive results that I am in Zones 8 and 9. Will the burning bush grow in the eastern part of Volusia County, FL (about five miles from the coast)? The exposure will be sun from late morning through sunset.

That is a bit outside the zone that burning bush shrubs would grow. You could try to make a micro climate in your yard to grow it in. This article will help you with this: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/projects/how-to-make-a-microclimate.htm
