    An unusual and long-flowering variety of pieris with deep pink, almost red, spring flowers and glossy, dark green leaves. This compact, rounded, evergreen shrub is perfect for a partly shady shrub border or woodland garden with moist, well-drained acid soil. To protect the handsome foliage from frost-damage shade from the early morning sun.

  • Garden care: Add composted pine needles or peat when planting. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of composted pine needles or peat each year around the base of the plant in early spring. Remove the faded flower-heads in late spring along with any frost-damaged foliage.
