Hands Off the Burning Bushes

            If you have Burning Bushes now is not a good time to prune them; in fact time has run out for pruning them.


            The Burning Bush as you may know turns red in the fall; it does this only with leaves that have been exposed to sunlight for a number of weeks. People who prune them too late in the season will have removed all these poetical red turning leaves, leaving those that have been shaded by the ones they have just remove, and therefore no red will be seen this fall.

            It is better to do this kind of pruning in the late fall, after they’ve turned red and have fallen off, or early spring.
