Primarily grown as an ornamental plant, the Pieris Mountain Fire sports many interesting features. It is perfect for the gardener looking for an unusual specimen plant for a shady corner.
From late winter into early spring, Pieris Mountain Fire lives up to its name because it looks like it has been set ablaze when new leaf growth brings a pop of flaming red tones. This unique effect can occur again in mid-summer under the right conditions, and is truly out of this world.
If that wasn't enough, the most remarkable aspect of Mountain Fire is that pinkish-white flower clusters form in unusual hanging chains that dangle from the plant like crystals on a chandelier. It is truly an exquisite and dramatic sight and uncommon in the plant world.
