If you can not plant within this time frame, put your plants in a cool location (ex- basement, garage or cellar) and water the roots daily. Cover them back up with the plastic so they will not dry out until you can plant them. After planted, water every evening after the sun goes down for 5 days.

Burning Bush Shrub
Hardy Planting Zone - Grows in zones 4 to 8
Bloom Season - Late spring to early summer
Bloom Color - Green
Height at Maturity - 9 to 15 feet
Soil Type Preferred - Well-drained and loamy soils.
Sun or Shade - Full to partial sun
The burning bush shrub grows best in zones 4 to 8, and it is best planted in the fall.
The serrated leaves of the plant are dark green and turn a vibrant shade of red in fall. In late spring to early summer, inconspicuous green flowers will begin blooming. These flowers will later turn into red berries in the late summer and fall with colder weather. The fallen berries can create more shrubs. Birds are attracted to the red berries as well.
Larger in size than typical shrubs, the burning bush shrub will grow up to 9 to 15 feet tall in its lifetime.
As long as the soil is well-draining, the shrub is tolerant of most other ground types and grows without a problem.
Full sun is preferred for the best growth, but it is tolerant of partial sun. As a hardy plant, the burning bush shrub does not need much in the way of maintenance. It is a drought-tolerant plant and requires very little water, and when it is watered, it must be done at the base of the plant to prevent any fungal mold from growing on the leaves. Pruning is needed only to cut back dead or broken branches, and it is to be done in early spring before any leaves begin to grow. If a more dramatic pruning is wanted, such as for reshaping, it is recommended to be done in late winter. Applying a slow-release fertilizer in the spring will produce greener, fuller foliage, especially on a younger shrub.
