The Flaming Silver Pieris is a rounded evergreen shrub that forms a small bush that will in time grow to 3 to 5 feet tall and wide. It has bright variegated foliage of mid-green edged with a border of pure white. The new spring growth is bright red, creating a stunning contrast against the white leaves – like flames on silver. Pendulous clusters of bell-shaped white flowers open a little before, or with, the red shoots, adding yet another dimension of beauty. This desirable shrub can be grown in shade gardens and wooded areas, or in planters and pots.

  • Beautiful white-variegated foliage
  • Striking bright red spring growth
  • White fragrant hanging blossoms
  • Excellent choice for shade gardens
  • Grows best in acidic soils

Partial shade, with morning sun and afternoon shade, is ideal for the Flaming Silver Pieris, especially in warmer zones. It will also grow in light dappled shade beneath deciduous trees. The soil should be moist, well-drained and acidic, although this plant is less demanding for soil acidity than most other acid-loving plants. Once it has suitable light and soil conditions this is a relatively easy plant to grow, and it is usually free of pests or diseases.
