    Design IdeasThis Pieris offers true rosy pink flowers that are a showstopper at close range. On homesites, looks beautiful under a high canopy of old trees. Perfect on the north and east exposures as foundation planting. Large enough to use for background near water gardens or in small Asian-inspired compositions. A perfect candidate for wild woodland gardens in the damp Pacific Northwest.

    Care Information

    Light Needs:
    <strong>Partial Sun / Partial Shade</strong>: These two terms are often used interchangeably to mean 3-6 (or 4-6) hours of sunlight each day. However, there is a difference.
<strong>Partial shade</strong> typically means the plants will appreciate a more gentle exposure such as the weaker morning or early afternoon sun, with the emphasis on providing the minimum needed shade and sheltering from intense late afternoon sun. <strong>Partial sun</strong> typically means the plants <u>need</u> some direct sun, so the emphasis is on meeting the required minimum hours of sunlight, with filtered sunlight or shade the balance of the day.
Both are best with shelter from the harshest late afternoon sun. This shade could be provided by a structure, a wall, larger plants or  tree(s).
