Design IdeasPieris is happiest when sheltered by the canopy of a large shade tree. Use to flesh out barren areas beneath specimen trees and groves. Makes a fine sideyard shrub that can be viewed at close range from windows. A superior choice for woodland homes seeking shrubs that thrive in acidic soils. Suited to Asian inspired gardens and for sheltered locations such as courtyards.
