Burning Bush

Burning Bush (Dictamnus Fraxinella) - Burning Bush is an aromatic plant with glossy dark green leaves grown from flower seeds. Spider-like fragrant flowers of carmine-rose appear during the summer months. This perennial plant is commonly called Burning Bush because, in arid weather, a flammable oil exudes from the leaves and seed pods. If a flame is placed near the Burning Bush Dictamnus plant, it will sometimes ignite without damaging the plant.

Burning Bush Dictamnus is a perennial, flowering plant which is hardy in USDA zones 3 - 8. It grows best in full sun, but will tolerate some light shade during the hottest months. Burning Bush seeds will easily grow in most well-draining garden soils, but appreciates the addition of a small amount of lime at planting time. Once established, the Burning Bush plant is very drought tolerant. Burning Bush seeds germinate well after a cold treatment. Plant the flowers seed outdoors in the late fall or indoors after being in the refrigerator.
