That sounds like the spot may not be the best for those shrubs. Either move them farther away from the base of the tree or do some minor root cutting to make a space for the shrubs. Firebush likes full sun to part day shade so beneath a tree like that it may not get enough light to do what you want it to do.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
