Pieris Forest Flame is one of the most popular plants we offer with its 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. Remove the faded flower-heads in late spring.
