Rich Color + Classic Growth Habit
Why Heavenly Bamboo Nandina Shrubs?
The fiery foliage and pink blooms make the Blush Pink Nandina an excellent landscape plant… and it really draws attention when planted in rows. In summer, the cooling blue-green colored leaves are welcoming and lush.
Planted as a hedge, they can create a river of soothing green in warm weather and a fabulous trail of fire for autumn excitement.
The Burning Bush has fantastic drought tolerance once established and easily adapts to a variety of soils and climate conditions. Homeowners in almost any area of the country can have great success in growing the burning bush in their yard. Burning Bush grows rather quickly and makes a beautiful statement in almost any yard.
Grows best in part shade to full sun. For that burst of flame in fall, be sure to plant the shrubs where they get full sun for most of the day. They love living in the shade, but the leaves will not be able to turn red without a massive dose of sunshine on a daily basis.
Great planted in masses and do well in geometric planting designs such as hedges and flower garden windbreaks.
Order your own row of Burning Bushes and enjoy the bright scarlet color in the fall!
Planting & Care
Plant your Burning Bush in an area that receives full to partial sunlight. Although your Bushing Bush prefers full sunlight, it will tolerate shade. Don’t plant your Burning Bush in a low area of your yard that collects standing water. Place your Burning Bushes about 3 feet apart to create a hedge.
Burning bushes prefer acidic soil, but will adapt to your natural soil even if it’s sandy or heavy in clay as long as it’s well-draining. Let your soil dry to the touch down to about 2 inches in between waterings. Once your soil is dry give your Burning Bush a deep watering at the base.
Fertilize your Burning Bush at the beginning of every Spring and Mid Summer with an acidic fertilizer for an acid-loving shrub. Every summer the leaves on your burning bush will be a blue-green color, until the Fall when they turn a vibrant fiery red color.
