Compact Winged Burning Bush is a dense multi-stemmed deciduous shrub with a more or less rounded form. Its average texture blends into the landscape, but can be balanced by one or two finer or coarser trees or shrubs for an effective composition. Deer are not fond of the taste of the leaves of a burning bush.
This is a relatively low maintenance shrub, and can be pruned at anytime. It has no significant negative characteristics.
Compact Winged Burning Bush is recommended for the following landscape applications:
Planting & Growing
Compact Winged Burning Bush will grow to be about 7 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 7 feet. It tends to fill out right to the ground and therefore doesn't necessarily require facer plants in front, and is suitable for planting under power lines. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 50 years or more.
This shrub performs well in both full sun and full shade. It is very adaptable to both dry and moist locations, and should do just fine under average home landscape conditions. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments.
