Glossy, brilliant red young leaves gradually turn pink, creamy white, then dark green. In late spring, clusters of pretty, ivory, nodding bell-like flowers appear, resembling lily-of-the-valley. The fiery red young foliage of this upright evergreen shrub will add a splash of vivid colour to a shady shrub border or woodland edge. One of the best varieties, this Pieris needs a moist, well-drained acid soil and shade from morning sun.

How to Care
• Water pieris deeply about once a week until established. The soil should be moist to about 3 inches deep in the soil. If it feels dry, water it. Avoid over-saturating the soil.

• Cut off any spent flowers with pruning shears. Trim back overgrown or diseased branches at their base as needed during the growing season; otherwise, Japanese pieris requires little pruning.
