The Prelude Pieris is a dwarf evergreen shrub growing about 2 feet tall and 3 feet wide, smothered in snow-white flower clusters in April and May. The new leaves are coppery-pink, adding beauty, and they turn dark green, staying that way through winter. The flower clusters develop over winter, and are attractive even before blooming begins. An ideal shrub for acidic woodland gardens with azaleas and rhododendrons, or mixed garden beds and for container growing.

  • Unique dwarf shrub for foreground planting
  • Smothered in pure-white flowers in April and May
  • New leaves are a striking coppery-pink
  • Suitable for container growing
  • Top-rated evergreen for woodland gardens

Full sun is best for the Prelude Pieris in cooler zones, and afternoon shade in warmer ones. It grows best in acidic soil that is well-drained but moist, and rich in organic material. It is normally free of pests or diseases and not eaten by deer. Apart from dead-heading, no attention is needed to grow this shrub. All parts of this plant can cause sickness in humans and animals, although cases are very rare.
