#ProPlantTips For Care

Best in full sun in cooler of the USDA growing zones 5-8, Pieris appreciate some afternoon shade or partial shade in the warmer zones, even tolerating full shade in the hottest climates.

Plant in moist, organic, well-drained acidic soil conditions. Keep moderate, yet consistent moisture and mulch the root system to help insulate the roots and better keep consistent moisture levels in the soil.

Deer generally avoid this plant, plus Pieris has few pest or disease issues. Not affected by urban conditions or pollution, these are easy-going plants!

Slower growing, Pieris won’t require much attention or fuss. The occasional pruning for shaping purposes, but be sure to only prune right after flowering, else you may remove next season’s blossoms!

Adaptable and easy-going, this hardy shrub will provide year-round surprises and joy to your landscape! Order your own colorful hedge today at NatureHills.com!
