I just received 10 bareroot burning bush schrubs. The co. I bought them from said to plant them 2 feet apart. My local nursery said to plant 4-5 feet apart. The question is, I am planting to make a hedge. I was told they will grow 5ft is width. With that said, I marked 5' between each bush to plant. The real question is will they grow 5' wide or will they grow as a 5' cube. If that is the case, should I adjust my planting in 2 1/2' from the originl mark?
Your response is greatly appreciated as I need to get them planted.
