Why Pieris Mountain Fire Plants?
Ideal for gardeners seeking an unusual specimen for that shady, hard-growing corner, the Pieris Mountain Fire lives up to its name. The Pieris sports flaming red leaf growth from late winter into early spring, setting your landscape ablaze.
Its blazing foliage is the perfect complement to the Pieris' pinkish-white flower clusters, which form in unusual hanging chains like a crystal chandelier. These densely packed, bell-shaped blooms are delicate and deliciously fragrant, lasting for months at a time in a rich display.
Plus, the beautifully arched Pieris can be shaped easily, forming a low privacy hedge, growing as a foundation plant, or artfully thriving in small groupings for a delightfully decorative accent. No matter where it grows, it's exceptionally hardy, drought-tolerant and even deer and pest resistant. Next to no work is required to enjoy the fireworks!

Planting & Care
1. Planting: Ensure you plant in a reliably sunny area (one that receives 4 to 6 hours of sunlight a day) and in well-drained soil. Once you’ve selected your location, dig a hole that’s two to three times the size of your shrub’s root ball, place your plant, then backfill the soil while tamping down the soil to avoid air pockets. After planting, water to settle the roots.
2. Watering: Water regularly during the first growing season to establish its root system, about once per week. You can reduce the frequency of watering once the plant is established. If you’re not sure when to water, simply check its surrounding soil, down to about 2 or 3 inches.
3. Fertilizing: Apply a balanced fertilizer to your shrub in early spring.
4. Pruning: Prune to shape your shrub after flowering.

Customer Reviews & Photos
Pretty all year round!
These are my favorite plants as they are evergreen and look good in all seasons. The new growth is especially gorgeous with its bright red color. These plants are very slow growing in my garden so they do well in tight spaces.
Good Healthy Plant
We really look forward to seeing how this plant matures. The two we bought seem really healthy and if mature as advertised they will be a great choice
I bought 3 and so far they are doing well. I love the bush once it is established and growing.. can't wait for the beautiful colors and bells..
We'll see - a little delay in delivery
Good - but we'll have to see how they survive and hopefully thrive. There was some confusion on this shipping side - maybe FedEx's problem. They were not delivered a day or two later than in the originally shipping notice. In the interim, the location was unknown for about 48 hours.
