Design IdeasWith its ornamental variegated leaves, this small Pieris offers great beauty to pocket gardens. Plant as a single or mass in an irregular group around landscape boulders. Or use as a backdrop for small water gardens and fountains. Excellent foundation plant that won't overgrow small patio gardens. Just as useful in the large woodland garden, where it remains low enough to preserve the sense of space. A crucial plant for wooded homesites on the Pacific Coast, where bright color beneath spreading conifers is always in demand.
