The Q&A Archives: Burning Bush

Question: Two yrs ago I planted a burning bush that I ordered in the mail. It has never grown or anything. This year it has 2 stems and about 3 leaves altogether. It gets partial sun. Can I move it to a place that has full sun, or will it die altogether if I transplant it?

Answer: I'd move the plant this fall or early next spring to a better garden spot. Full sun is necessary for good performance so find a sunny spot for your burning bush. I think you'll see a big improvement in its growth after it has been moved. Good luck with your landscape!
