The Q&A Archives: burning bush

Question: why has all the leaves come off my burning bush just after I planted it?
Will it come back?

Answer: Transplant shock is the mostly likely reason your new shrub lost its leaves. You probably won't see any new leaves until next spring - but then again, you might. I'd just water the shrub on a regular basis to help the roots establish and you should see some new growth next spring. Best wishes with your burning bush!
