|Botanical Pronunciation||PY-er-iss juh-PON-ih-kuh|
|Lore||The tiny bell shaped flowers similar to that of heather and manzanita are indicators that Pieris is a member of the Ericaceae family.|
|Average Size at Maturity||Slow growing to 4 to 6 ft. tall and wide.|
|Design Ideas||Pieris 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.|
