pieris japonica dorothy wyckoff
A superb shade-loving, flowering evergreen shrub. Foliage is dark, glossy green, bronze to red when young. Urn-shaped flowers are borne in pendent, terminal panicles, to 6 inches long. Bloomtime is from late winter to early spring. Related to rhododendrons and azaleas, it requires the same shady, moist, acidic, well-drained soil. 'Dorothy Wyckoff' has deeply veined, very deep green leaves, turning bronzy in cold weather. Purplish-red buds open to pale pink flowers, later turning white.
