How to Plant a Winged Burning Bush

    • 1). Choose an outdoor planting location that has moist but not soggy soil. The bush can tolerate full sun to full shade and any type of soil from sandy to rich loam. Choose an area that has at least 8 feet of clearance on all sides to accommodate the mature growth of the bush.

    • 2). Insert a shovel into the soil and dig a hole that is the same width and depth as the root ball of the winged burning bush plant.

    • 3). Insert the roots of the burning bush into the hole and fill in the hole with soil. Press down firmly on top of the soil to pack it down. Plant additional shrubs, if desired, spacing each at 8-foot intervals.

    • 4). Water the soil using a garden hose until it is moist but no water is standing on the surface.

    • 5). Spread a 2- to 4-inch layer of mulch on the soil under the base of the bush to hold in the soil moisture. Pine, cedar or cypress mulch is best for burning bush shrubs, according to the Karen's Garden Tips website.
