Pieris japonica Mountain Fire

Pieris Mountain Fire

A long-established, larger cultivar of this acid-loving species, Pieris japonica Mountain Fire is a medium-sized, slow-growing, evergreen shrub with an upright, rounded habit. The heavily divided leathery leaves emerge bronze-red, turning coppery and finally a deep, glossy green. In spring, panicles of small, cream-coloured urn-shaped flowers almost cover the plant. Pieris Mountain Fire holds the RHS Award of Garden Merit, and is good grown in ericaceous compost in a container, or in dappled shade as part of a woodland planting. Like all pieris, it’s attractive to pollinators.
