The Dorothy Wyckoff Pieris is a medium-sized evergreen shrub that reaches around 5 feet tall and 3 feet wide, with leathery dark green leaves. The new leaves are coppery red and in cold winters the leaves may turn dark red. The flower buds appear early, and all through winter they are attractive, developing like spreading fingers, and strongly red for months. In spring the buds turn pink and then white, making a striking contrast with the red stems. This beautiful and elegant shrub is perfect in any garden, from formal to woodland and Asian.

  • Dark red hanging buds through winter
  • Long trusses of white flowers in spring
  • Attractive leathery foliage is red in spring and again in winter
  • Beautiful shrub for woodland and shaded gardens
  • Grows best in acidic soil

Grow the Dorothy Wyckoff Pieris in semi-shade – morning sun and afternoon shade is ideal. The dappled shade beneath widely spaced trees is also suitable. The best soil for this plant will be rich, moist, well-drained and acidic. It grows best in areas with moderate climates; winters that are not too cold and summers that are cooler and damp. Pests and diseases are rare and deer usually ignore it. It’s an easy plant to grow if the conditions are suitable, and needs no special care or pruning.
