Pieris are small shrubs that produce lots of flowers that hang in clusters on the shrub. They are often called "Lilly of the Valley trees" due to the way they showcase their flowers.

Prieris typically flower in Winter to early Spring and are sensitive to hot weather. You'll need to keep up the watering during the hotter months.

There are a few varities, however Pieris ‘Forest Flame’ has great foliage and typical white pieris flowers. The new leaves appear bright red in spring, changing colour through pink, cream and green.

Mulch yearly in Spring with well-rotted pine needles, leafmould or bark mulch to maintain a low soil pH. The mulch also helps to keep roots cool and moist

You can remove faded flowers and frost-damaged leaves in late-spring.
