Pieris japonica 'Purity'
|Description||One of the latest flowering varieties, extending the spring bloom in the landscape. Showy red buds form in summer to fall and persist through winter, creating multi-season interest. Clusters of pure white flowers emerge in spring to shine against rich green foliage. Excellent to highlight a shrub border. Evergreen.|
|Watering||Keep soil moist, but not soggy.|
|Mature Size||Slow growing; reaches 3 to 4 ft. tall and wide.|
|Flower Attributes||Long Bloom Season, Showy Flowers|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container, Hedge|
|Design Ideas||This Pieris is valued more for its dainty bell-flower clusters than fall color. Bright shiny leaves makes it a great contrast plant in the flowering shrub border, but, like all this clan, it thrives in the filtered light of the woodland understory. An excellent background plant with conifers in Japanese tea gardens. Plant near decks, patios and in smaller enclosed gardens, allowing the charming flowers to be appreciated up close. Also nice below windows. A useful foundation plant for moist north and eastern exposures.|
|Companion Plants||Oregon Grape Holly (Mahonia); Rhododendron (Rhododendron); Japanese Maple (Acer palmatum); Holly (Ilex); Camellia (Camellia)|
|Care||Provide organically rich, slightly acidic, evenly moist, well-drained soil, with protection from harsh winds. Thrives in dappled shade. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Keep roots cool with a thick layer of mulch. Feed with an acid fertilizer after bloom.|
|Lore||The clue to ericaceous plants is their distinctive small bell shaped flowers often borne in great profusion as with heather.|
