The Katsura Pieris is a unique evergreen shrub for shady parts of your garden. It has vibrant, dark-red spring leaves, fading slowly through pink and pale green to the rich, dark green of the mature foliage. Before the leaves hanging clusters of pink flowers decorate every branch, a novel color for Pieris. It forms a rounded plant 3 feet tall and wide within 10 years, and it will eventually double that size. It is idea for shady beds around your home, out in the garden and in woodland settings.

  • Wine-red spring growth makes a bold display
  • Compact evergreen shrub for partial shade
  • Spring flowers are pendulous pink sprays of bells
  • Easier to grow than rhododendrons
  • Ideal for planting beneath trees

Plant the Katsura Pieris in an area with morning sun and afternoon shade, or in light, broken shade all day. It grows best in rich, moist, well-drained acidic soil, but it is less demanding for that than rhododendrons are. If you don’t have suitable soil, grow it in a planter, using potting soil blended for acid-loving plants. It normally has no pests or diseases and it needs no trimming or pruning beyond removing the dead flower stems.
