Autumn burning bush are so gorgeous and bright!  It is hard not to notice them.  🙂  This hardy shrub is very easy to grow in full sun location for best fall colour.   Even though it is OK with shady location but never the best in terms of colour changing in time before dropping the leaves.   Small pale yellow flowers in spring and follow the orange red fruit in late summer throughout the cold winter.   Fruits attract birds but the plant is mild toxic to human.

Propagate by cuttings, grafting or seeds.   Although all burning bush seedlings growth rate is extremely slow.  Buying mature plant is worthy.   USDA Zones:4-8.  Mature size:9′-11′(H)and (W).     This shrub tolerants heavy pruning so you can keep the hedge any desire height as you want.     ‘Rudy Haag’  is 3′-5′(H)and (W) if you do not want to prune them.

火燄衛矛秋天的紅豔葉色非常亮眼很難不注意到它們.  🙂  這是很強健的小型灌木,很容易栽種在全日照處以利葉色轉為較紅.  半日照或蔭處雖也能生長,不過葉色的轉紅可能不一致並且落葉較快.  春天開淡黃色小花,隨即果實在夏末秋初時轉為橘紅色並維持到初冬,鳥類在冬天時缺乏食物會爭食其果實, 人類不可誤食.

繁殖多以扦插或高壓為主,雖也能用種子種出實生苗不過實生苗實在生長很慢並不建議.  還是買成株的容易又省時.  這種大量被使用在綠籬的小型灌木價格合理,各個花圃花店幾乎都能購得.  耐寒性佳.  成熟株高9-11呎,耐修剪.  如不想常修剪的話可以選擇較為矮性的品種叫: ‘Rudy Haag’,高與寬幅皆僅為3-5呎.

Acer rubrum (Red Maple, also known as Swamp, Water or Soft Maple), is one of the most common and widespread deciduous trees here in Canada. Its tiny red flowers are quite showy in spring. I love its stunning red fall colour!!
