How and when do I plant a burning bush?

I live in Maryland and have a burning bush. I planted it in the summer about 7 years ago. I have never done anything special to it other than water it when it was small. It is huge now and beautiful! The red leaves in the fall are unbelievable! They must be pretty hardy, so if I were you, I'd plant one in the spring or summer once you're out of the frost scare. Good luck! (01/14/2009)
Burning bushes are pretty sturdy, hardy shrubs. The only thing I had to do special was keep chicken wire fences around them while they were young so that the rabbits didn't kill them. Otherwise, with regular watering, they should take off on their own. (01/20/2009)
