Pieris Debutante prefers the same conditions as Azaleas and Rhododendrons – well drained humus rich acidic soil that retains some moisture during the summer. For best results plant away from exposed north or eastern aspects where the soft young growth may be damaged by strong winds or late frosts.

Pieris will thrive in sun or partial shade. Pruning is not normally necessary although the spent flowerheads may be removed after they have faded to maintain a tidy appearance.
