PollinatorAward

Compact form with bright red initial foliage

Like most Pieris, the main attraction of Mountain Fire is the foliage. Leaves emerge red, turn to bronze and eventually turn dark green in the autumn. It blossoms in spring with cascades of white bell shaped flowers.

Where?

Thrives in full sun or part shade.

How?

Pieris like acid soil so plant in ericaceous compost.

Pieris like the same conditions as Rhododendrons and Azaleas so can be planted in the same border. Awarded the RHS AGM.

Planting instructions

Water the plant in its pot thoroughly before planting – give it a good soaking. Prepare the area by digging a hole twice the size of the pot. Dig compost into the base of the hole. Remove the pot and position the plant in the hole, with the top of the rootball about level with the surrounding soil. Refill the planting hole with a mixture of garden soil and compost, firming as you go. Water in well and keep well watered during the plant's first year.

Planting site Cottage garden, Informal garden, City garden, Courtyard garden, Flower border and beds
