The Temple Bells Pieris is a superb shrub for shady parts of your garden, in woodland settings, or in Asian gardens. It is beautiful all year round with its deep-green leathery foliage and all winter the flower buds are attractive and full of promise. In late winter or early spring those buds open, to reveal fragrant flowers that look like lily-of-the-valley. It grows just 3 or 4 feet tall and across, so it fits perfectly into smaller spaces, or it can be planted to form an edging to a shady path. It is also perfect for planters and boxes, especially if you don’t have suitable soil or conditions in your garden.

  • White flowers in late winter, like lily-of-the-valley
  • Beautiful leathery evergreen foliage
  • Perfect plant for woodland and shady gardens
  • Grows well in moist, acidic soils
  • Ideal for planters in shady parts of your garden

Grow the Temple Bells Pieris in partial shade, or the dappled shade beneath deciduous trees. It should be grown in moist, acidic soil with a pH below 6.5. The soil should be well-drained, but moist, and rich in organic material. Dig plenty of rich, lime-free compost into the soil when planting, and mulch in spring or fall each year with more. Keep well-watered, especially in the early years, as this plant has very little resistance to drought. It rarely has pest or disease problems, deer leave it alone, and it needs no special care at all if the soil conditions are suitable for it.
