Pieris Flaming Silver is a pretty, small, variegated, evergreen shrub with bright red, young leaves which develop silvery-white edges, contrasting beautifully with the older leaves. In mid and late spring, clusters of pretty, white, nodding bell-like flowers, resembling lily-of-the-valley appear. This compact shrub looks wonderful in a shady shrub border with well-drained, acid soil or in a container in a patio or courtyard garden.
Remove the faded flower heads in late spring along with any frost-damaged foliage.
