Quick Overview:

‘Compactus’ is a popular burning bush cultivar. It is a deciduous shrub which is not all that "compact" since it typically grows in a mound to 10′ tall with a slightly larger spread, though it can easily be kept shorter by pruning. It features elliptic to obovate, dark green leaves (to 3" long) which turn bright red in fall (sometimes more pinkish in shade). Fall color can be spectacular and gives rise to the common name. Small, yellowish-green flowers appear in May but are not showy. Small fruits (1/3" red capsules) appear in fall, but are usually hidden by the foliage.
