How to grow Fireball

– Plant it among spring and summer flowering shrubs for a jolt of color in the fall.
– To maximize the fall red foliage color, the plants should be placed in full sun.
– Plants placed in areas with too much shade will color up much later in the fall and will often lose their leaves before they have a chance to turn bright red.
– Tolerant of most soils except extremely wet conditions. pH adaptable. Prefers medium moisture.


Fertilize in early spring by applying a slow release fertilizer specialized for trees and shrubs. Fertilizer will prime the plant to have a good growth flush in spring to its maximum potential. Withstands heavy pruning. Can be done whenever, but best done in late fall.
