A Gentle Form of Privacy: A Row of Burning Bushes: Occupy the Eyes with Fire in the Fall
We often point out that while the most complete privacy is accomplished by a row of Conifers, such as the Green Giant Thuja or the American Pillar Thuja, but there are other sensible alternatives. Our eyes are inherently lazy and tend to fixate on the first interesting thing they encounter. Such is a row of bright red bushes.
Burning Bushes look their best in the Fall and the rest of the year just vigorously growing green bush. They are near impossible to kill and respond well to pruning.
The pictures below show rows of Burning Bushes around mid October. Besides their beauty in the Fall, they also provide a good bit of privacy. Their height ultimately depends on how they are pruned, but generally they are maintained around 5-7’ height.
