Buy Pieris 'Flaming Silver' lily-of-the-valley shrub: Compact evergreen for acid soil with red young leaves

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: humus-rich, moist, well-drained acid soil or ericaceous compost
  • Rate of growth: slow-growing
  • Flowering period: April to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A pretty, small, variegated, evergreen shrub with bright red, young leaves which develop silvery-white edges, contrasting beautifully with the older leaves. In mid and late spring, clusters of pretty, white, nodding bell-like flowers resembling lily-of-the-valley appear. This compact shrub looks wonderful in a shady shrub border with well-drained, acid soil or in a container in a patio or courtyard garden.

  • Garden care: Add composted pine needles or ericaceous compost when planting and apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch each year around the base of the plant in early spring. Remove the faded flower heads in late spring along with any frost-damaged foliage.

Gorgeous plant - pretty all year round

My garden is north facing and gets almost no sun in winter, yet the plant is thriving, looks exotic and surprising especially when the new leaves are red and coincide with bunches of white flowers
