Burning bush is an understatement with Rudy Haag’s fiery red foliage in the fall! A perfectly petite shrub as it is a true dwarf growing only 3-5 feet tall. Fitting all garden sizes and can be a bit of a show-off accent plant as dainty yellow flowers accompany even the gorgeous green leaves in the spring. This slow-growing stunner has also been referred to as “Winged Spindle Tree” for its distinctive Corky-winged stems that become more noticeable in winter after the leaves drop. Rudy Haag Burning Bush grew in popularity in the landscaping scene for its hardy growth and year-round interest and versatility in the garden as a sturdy screen or hedge mixed with evergreens or a stand-alone beauty in garden borders. It may be pint-sized, but it will unfold in colors from spring to fall!
