Product Information

Pieris are spectacular evergreen shrubs and possibly 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, from April until June, 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.

Supplied as 3 established plants in 9cm pots, ready for planting, including:

‘Forest Flame’ – This stunning holder of the RHS Award of Garden Merit has fiery red young foliage that turns to green through pink and cream, with creamy white flowers and reaching a height of 4m and spread of 2.5m.

‘Flaming Silver’ – Vivid red young leaves that turns glossy green with silvery white edging, growing to 1.5m high with a spread of 1m.

‘Mountain Fire’ – Another Award of Garden Merit winner, with bright red young leaves mature to dark green and contrast with delicate white flowers, reaching a height and spread of 4m.

Top Tips

  • Pieris do best in acid ground, so plant 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.
