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.
