#ProPlantTips for Care

Grow Dorothy Wycoff Pieris in full sun or partial shade. They need at least four hours of sunlight a day.

Rich, moist, well-drained, slightly acidic soils are best. They love a three-inch layer of pine straw mulch over their root systems. Add compost top-dressing to further enrich the soil.

Apply a medium amount of water on a regular basis. Container plants need careful watering, as well.

These shrubs bloom on last year's wood. Wait to prune until the flowering is done. Or...cut the branches in bloom and bring indoors for flower arrangements.

If you live in an area with deer, we recommend repellent spray starting on planting day. You can also apply a slow-release evergreen fertilizer formula, according to the directions on the label.

Our growers adore them, and their care truly shows. Order your Dorothy Wycoff Pieris ASAP!
