Mountain Fire Pieris Japonica

pieris japonica mountain fire
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.
