(Burning Bush) Outstanding fall color! Fire Ball® has the brilliant vivid red fall color to be expected of Burning Bush. Its low maintenance, has nice winged bark, and isn't prone to pest problems. Fire Ball® Euonymus produces small red fruits for winter interest. This cultivar is an improved selection of compact Burning Bush that has tighter branching and superior stem hardiness. No winter damage even in the coldest of winters, while other varieties may experience stem dieback. The slightly more compact habit makes it a better fit in the landscape and easier to maintain. Fire Ball® will only get about 6 feet tall, while other varieties may reach up to 10 feet in height. Plant it among spring and summer flowering shrubs for a jolt of color in the fall. Fertilizer will prime the plant to have a good growth flush in spring to maximum fall color potential. Looks unbelievable as a fall specimen, also makes a terrific hedge or screen plant. Withstands heavy pruning that can be done at anytime, but best done in late fall. In hardiness zone 9 partial shade is a must. Patent Strings: Fire Ball® Euonymus alatus 'Select'
