Burning Bush Transplant
I have a neighbor who is redoing his beds. He has 3 burning bushes that he wants to get rid of because they are not getting enough sun and they don't display the dark color in the winter. As you can see from the photos they are very large and have grown into each other. I am debating on taking these and planting in them in a full sun location in my landscape bed - see picture. My question is, how hard can I cut these back? And if I cut them back hard, how long will they take to regain their foliage?
Here is where I want to place them...spaced out along the side of the house. Lilac will go in the corner near the fence and a weeping cheery tree is going in where the rock is at the front of the bed.
