Pieris Prelude Shrubs

Pieris japonica Prelude

This lovely compact variety grows to just 90cm making it ideal for confined spaces, container growing (using ericaceous compost) and even as evergreen flowering ground cover. Masses of tiny white lily-of-the-valley flowers open from March until May and are much loved by many kinds of pollinating insects. A colourful flush of new Spring growth starts with shades of orange red and bronze before ripening to dark green. A lovely compact little shrub that looks neat and tidy all year bringing welcome structure to the garden long after the flowers have passed. 90cm x 90cm.

Pieris japonica Prelude 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.
