A dense, rich green shrub with one
of the finest fall color displays, ranging from brilliant red to burgundy.
In early fall, attractive orange-red seeds will ripen. In winter the
corky-winged branches offer a silhouette of distinction, especially
after a freshly fallen snow. Striking when displayed with evergreens,
it is a nice screen, hedge or specimen. Rudy Haag is especially useful
due to its small size. It is a true dwarf burning bush. The older 'compactus'
can reach 8 ft tall quickly, while Rudy Haag maintains 4 ft with light pruning.
