Pieris Japonica

A native of Japan Pieris japonica is an upright to spreading ornamental shrub, noted for its emerging bronzed foliage, dark shiny evergreen mature foliage, showy floral buds that mature in late Summer and are attractive in Autumn and Winter, and showy white (or pink) inflorescences that bloom in late Winter to early Spring.

Mine stands by the front door and is quite large.
 It is one of the first things to bloom in the spring garden.
I hope this answers the questions from Today's Flowers #189.


  1. Thank you for posting all the additional photos and info on Pieris Japonica. I am thinking of planting this near my front door (to replace a camellia with too much sun). Loi

  2. Thanks for the information of Japan Pieris.


I love hearing from you. Don't be shy!
