Love it!
Just arrived yesterday and I'm very happy with the condition it arrived in. Delivery loosened a bit of the soil but it seemed like a sturdy enough plant to not be bothered. Mine did arrive with a couple aphids browsing around in the soil, but that was fixed quickly with soapy water. Color is vibrant and the branches are strong and healthy. Very Happy, Thank you!

    There are several varieties of the "Burning Bush", but this particular one - "Fire Ball" - is a more compact version of the plant, which is perfect for our yard. It shouldn't get any larger than 5 to 7 feet tall, and about the same width, which means very little maintenance required. And while Burning Bush it is not deer proof, it is deer resistant - always a consideration in our neighborhood. The plant arrived in excellent condition, ready to plant. Instructions suggest well drained soil and moderate water, so it will fit right in with our other plantings. Fire Ball can planted in zones 4 to 8, which means just about anywhere in the USA. More sunshine will result in brighter red foliage in the fall, and the plant can tolerate - and may even benefit from some shade the further south you live.

    This shrub arrived in great condition. I unpacked it carefully and set it outdoors for the better part of a day and overnight in order for it to acclimate. The next day I planted it with great care and for several days kept it moist, thinking this would help keep it from going into shock. The weather here in my area has been unusually warm for November, so I am sure it has gotten off to a good start. It has begun going dormant and I am looking forward to next Spring when it will spring back to life.

    Like everything else you purchase these days, items have become smaller. Knew these were quarts but took a leap of faith and thought maybe they filled the pot. Not even close. Purchased these over a month ago and still have them in their pots trying to get a little more growth before I put them in the ground. Won't do this again.
