So much amazing year-round color Japanese Andromeda 'Brouwer's Beauty' (Pieris x. 'Brouwer's Beauty') on one compact, evergreen shrub!
Brouwers Beauty starts off in the early spring with a heavy flush of purplish-red buds open in an explosion of lovely white flowers.
Pollinators will adore these blooms as much as you will! Brouwer's Beauty is a great choice for an early blooming, hardy plant with the added bonus of being an especially deer-resistant, multi-use landscape shrub.
Its dark-green, glossy foliage and dense, compact growth become the perfect backdrop for both the brilliant reddish buds and lovely white blossoms!
Sometimes called Lily-of-the-Valley shrub due to the similar shaped flowers and fragrance of those blooms, Brouwers Beauty has a slower growth and a refined habit. Slower growing means less work for you! No need to prune or provide lots of attention, Brouwers Beauty keeps its shape with ease!
Brouwers Beauty makes an excellent choice for the urban landscape and today's smaller lot sizes. Perfectly sized for a low hedge or privacy screen, use around your seating areas and fire pit.
Evergreen shrubs like Japanese Andromeda are always welcome additions to mixed-shrub borders, as amazing, vibrant backdrops to other smaller shrubs and perennials in the garden!
Brouwers Beauty also creates superb foundation plantings for year-round curb appeal! Anchor your garden beds with steady evergreen, plus the colors and blooms make this shrub a lovely focal point and garden accent.
A bit of extra care will ensure a healthy vibrant plant. For best results, Japanese Andromeda Brouwers Beauty thrives in moderately fertile, organically rich, humusy, and slightly acidic soil. These do best in well-drained soil and do not like to sit in standing water at all.
Once established however Andromeda is highly drought tolerant and great plantings for Xeriscaping and fire-wise plantings.
Doing best in full sun in cooler growing zones and partial shade when the summer sun is intense when planted in southern climates. You might need to give it a little TLC and protect it in winter until it is established. Japanese Andromeda benefits greatly from mulch around the base of the root system to insulate the roots and hold in more soil moisture.
The faded flowers can be snapped off at the base of the truss if desired. Because of the slower-growing nature, it is rare you'll need to prune unless wishing to control the size. If that is the case, prune right after blooming is done so you won't miss the fragrant spring show!
