A rabbit ate my Burning Bush down to nothing. Will it grow again?

Yes, it should grow back again, unless you planted it just this year. Give it plenty of water and wait. If you don't want a repeat of it, you will have to surround it with a fence. I have to do that with my veggie garden or they eat everything that comes up. (04/23/2009)
I know all about that. For the first few years I had to keep chicken wire around mine until they were established and sturdy enough to put up with the rabbits. Every winter the rabbits prune them, and chew quite a bit of bark off of them, but they always have survived. At least so far. (04/23/2009)
If and when it comes back try sprinkling the plant with ground chili peppers, not on a windy day, if they take a bite it will probably be there last. (04/27/2009)
