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.
