Comments: Leaves that are less than an inch long and are feathery lend this pieris a conifer look. White, fragrant flowers in spring, red spring foliage, interesting brown fruit arranged like beads on a string, and clean neat evergreen foliage are wonderful attributes of pieris. It is excellent for woodland gardens, in a container, and in the shade garden. Drying out or standing in water is extremely damaging to pieris.
