No pruning needed, just cut away dead or broken branches

The leaves of the Euonymus alatus 'compactaus' will turn bright, red for magnificent fall foliage when planted in full sun.

When planting Dwarf Burning Bush choose a site that provides well-drained soil and full to mostly sun.

To plant, dig a hole no deeper than the root ball and two to three times the width of the root ball and fill it with water. If the hole drains within a few hours, you have good drainage. If the water is still standing 12 hours later, improve the drainage in your bed, perhaps by establishing a raised bed. Turn and break up the soil removed from the planting hole. If the native soil removed from the planting hole is compacted or heavy clay, mix in organic compost at a 25 to 30% ratio to condition soil. Remove your plant from its container and carefully but firmly loosen the root ball. Set the plant into the hole you've prepared, making sure the top of the root ball is slightly above the soil level. Pull your backfill soil mixture around the root ball in the hole, tamping as you go to remove air pockets. Then water thoroughly and cover with a one to two-inch layer of mulch.

I fertilize Burning Bush one time a year with a well-balanced shrub and tree type fertilizer just after new growth has emerged in spring.

I've been growing Burning Bush for over two decades and have had no problems with insects or diseases on these plants. Burning bush is a very tough, long-lived, low-maintenance plant.

I have 3 burning bushes and one of them is thinning out and the leaves are culing. Have any ideas for me to save it?
