Pieris Mountain Fire is a compact, rounded, evergreen shrub grown for its early display of spring flowers. It’s perfect for growing in a shrub border or woodland area. It bears attractive bronze foliage which matures to dark green, and white blooms.
Pieris japonica ‘Mountain Fire’ has bright red young bracts in spring, which contrast beautifully with pure white flowers. The foliage matures to a deep, rich green.
Grow Pieris japonica ‘Mountain Fire’ in a sheltered, partially shaded spot in moist but well-drained, acidic soil. Mulch annually with well-rotted pine needles. Remove faded flowers and frost-damaged foliage in late-spring.
