Has a compact growth habit, and a continuous flow of eye-catching deep red new foliage through spring and summer, this is a resilient performer in a variety of conditions. Rose-coloured blooms on racemes appear in late winter, creating an elegant cascade of flowers in contrast to the deep green foliage.
Thrives in well-drained, humus-rich, lime-free soils that mimic its native mountain forest habitat. It performs well in full sun or dappled shade. Prefers well drained rich soils and little pruning is required.
If you’re inspired by Japanese design, then you can’t walk past Pieris ‘Katsura’ pbr for your garden retreat. Featuring dramatic wine-red new foliage, which ages to green, Katsura will liven the dullest corner of your landscape. Use in mixed garden plantings or as informal hedges in semi shaded areas. Combines well with Azalea, Camellia, Hydrangea and Helleborus.
