The Mountain Fire Pieris, or Lily-of-the-valley bush, is a medium-sized evergreen shrub growing to 6 or 8 feet tall and 4 to 6 feet wide. It has attractive glossy foliage and a bushy, rounded form. In early spring it carries beautiful pure white flowers in hanging bunches, and these are followed by bright red new leaves, which hold their brilliance for weeks, before turning rich green. Grow it among background or foundation evergreens, or in woodland areas. If you don’t have suitable soil, grow it in a large planter, pot or half-barrel, where it will thrive for years.

  • Brilliant red new leaves are vibrant and beautiful
  • Long sprays of hanging white bell-shaped flowers
  • Large evergreen bush to 6 or 8 feet tall
  • Valuable anywhere in the garden
  • Grow in large planters if your garden soil is unsuitable

Grow the Mountain Fire Pieris in full sun in cooler zones, and with afternoon shade in warmer ones. The soil should be rich, moist and well-drained, and acidic, with a pH value below 6.5. Water regularly in summer, as it is not very drought resistant, but good drainage is also needed. Mulch with rich, lime-free organic material to conserve moisture and keep the roots cool. Pests and diseases are rare, and deer normally leave it alone. Removing spent flowers is helpful but not essential, and this plant needs very little maintenance if grown in a suitable place.
