is this a perennial ?

BEST ANSWER: Technically, yes. It is deciduous, meaning it loses it leaves after a few frosts and returns/releafs every spring.
We want to make hedges from these....Will the burning Bush work?
Elizabeth H on Mar 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Absolutely! A hedge of these plants will put on a stunning fall show. Just make sure you abide by the spacing guidelines above and don't plant them too close or too far apart or you will lose the effect.
when is the best time to plant these for zone 6a?
Sandra S on Jun 27, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate you reaching out to us. Because weather and soil conditions vary so much from year to year and even within your zone, it's best to think of your planting time as a range of favorable conditions instead of an exact time.

You can plant new plants and trees:
1) when the ground is not frozen.
2) when daytime temperatures are above freezing (32??F) and below 90??F.
3) when extreme weather (blizzard, hail, torrential rain, etc.) is not in the forecast. Be sure to keep plants watered if you're transplanting in warm and/or dry weather.

If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to reach back out to us. Have a great day!

I have a space 15 ft long and 6 feet wide. I would place on one side of my patio. How many shrubs would you recommend?
Linda R on Oct 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: These should be planted 3-4' apart, so if you wanted a nice thick hedge, you should plant 5 of them 3" apart. Stunning display of fall foliage!!
What kind of berries do you get from this plant?
Irfan A on Jul 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This is not an edible plant; eating the ornamental berries or any part of this plant is extremely toxic to dogs, and can make humans very ill. DO NOT consume the berries of this plant.
how fast does this bush grow, and how long before it starts to flower? I planted mine about 3.5 to 4 ft. from my fence and about ten feet apart in full sun!
Linda R on Jun 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Growth rates vary depending on environmental conditions, but in general, you can expect your dwarf burning bush to grow between 1 and 2 feet per year until it reaches maximum size.
