Forest Flame Pieris

Pieris x 'Forest Flame'

SKU
06508
One of the most stunning shrubs in the cool season landscape. Brilliant red, then creamy pink new foliage provides a beautiful backdrop for the profusion of blooms in spring. Clusters of pink-tinged buds cool to a creamy white, then erupt into large, white flowers. Foliage matures to green. An excellent companion for azaleas. Evergreen.
