Plant Haven’s New Pieris

Plant Haven's New Pieris

Pieris ‘Katsura’, from PlantHaven, has bright, glossy leaves with deep wine-red new growth changing to green with age. Unique burgundy foliage flushes continuously throughout the season. The flowers, borne on rose colored racemes, are lilac-white with a lilac skirt. In late spring, blooms cascade over green foliage. The habit of this broad upright bush is compact and reaches 4-feet to 5-feet high in 10 years. Pieris ‘Katsura’ thrives in well drained, humus rich, lime-free soil similar to its native mountain forest habitat in sun or light shade. ‘Katsura’ makes a stunning addition to a Japanese-themed garden.
