Product Information

These showy evergreen shrubs are perhaps the perfect garden plant as they are easy to care for, fully hardy and give months of interest in the garden. Young foliage in early spring takes on dazzling shades of red and pink before slowly maturing to glossy green. Later in spring dense panicles of white or pink blossom emerge resembling 'Lily of the Valley' and giving a superb display for several weeks.

Pieris are very easy to care for and need little attention apart from removal of spend flowers and a light trim every couple of years to keep shape. Although fully hardy they are best in a sheltered spot as young foliage can be damaged by severe frost and high winds.  Plant in borders or large patio pots. Best in acidic soil, in containers use ericaceous compost.

Collection contains one 1L potted plant each of:

  • Forest Flame - fiery red young foliage turns to green through pink and cream. Creamy white flowers.
  • Scarlett O'Hara - bronzy red new leaves and white blossom
  • Dorothy Wykoff - reddish new growth. deep red buds open to pale pink blooms
  • Valley Valentine - very long flowering with deepest pink blossom
  • Little Heath - unusual variegated green and cream leaves

Top Tips

Pieris do best in acid soil, so make an ideal candidate for growing in a pot in ericaceous soil.

Care Information

  • Pieris are fully winter hardy, however young growth can be damaged by frost so they are best placed in a sheltered position. Pieris can also be grown in partial shade, so are ideal for a woodland border.
  • Pieris do not require pruning - a simple tidy up of any spindly or damaged branches or spent flowers is all that is needed in late spring after flowering.
  • One essential requirement when growing any variety of Pieris is for acid soil and if feeding, and ericaceous feed only.
