The Compacta Burning Bush (Euonymus alatus ‘Compactus’) is a shrub that proudly wears its scarlet color and lives up to its ‘burning bush’ moniker. It nearly glows in the garden. The part of its name it doesn’t live up to is the ‘compacta’. This shrub can grow to be a whopping 10 feet tall or more! It takes well to shearing, though, and can be kept at a more petite size. A popular and versatile shrub, the Burning Bush is wonderful as a hedge or screen but can hold its own as an ornamental or foundation plant. Spring to summer your Burning Bush will have rich, green leaves up to 3 inches long. In the spring small, yellow green flowers appear adding interest to this extremely popular shrub.

It adapts well to a variety of soils and climates. It thrives in most areas of the United States with little care. Even though the Burning Bush ‘Compacta’ will grow happily in a semi-shady area, it needs whole days of full sun to develop those amazing red leaves in the fall, so choose your site carefully.
