Buy Pieris 'Forest Flame' lily-of-the-valley shrub: Evergreen shrub for acid soil with red young foliage

  • 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 and May
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (will need winter protection)

    Glossy, brilliant red young leaves gradually turn pink, creamy white, then dark green. In late spring, clusters of pretty, ivory, nodding bell-like flowers appear, resembling lily-of-the-valley. The fiery red young foliage of this upright evergreen shrub will add a splash of vivid colour to a shady shrub border or woodland edge. One of the best varieties, this Pieris needs a moist, well-drained acid soil and shade from morning sun.

  • Garden care: Add composted pine needles or ericaeous 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.
