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.
Flower Color White
Foliage Color Green
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.
