Pure white flowers shoot like fireworks in the early summer. Low mounded compact stature is perfectly suited for large banks or borders. Great in Container. Attracts butterflies. If burning bush has good Fall Colour, then this is a wildfire.

Prefers rich moist, slightly acidic soil. Water regularly as needed. Feed in spring with an all purpose fertilizer prior to new growth. Very little pruning required. Remove broken or damaged limbs.
