Pieris japonica

P. japonica ‘Flamingo’

Both beautiful and useful, this shade-loving, winter-to-early spring blooming evergreen shrub provides year-round interest as well as abundant pollen for bees and hummingbirds.

New spring foliage starts out bronzy-red and matures to deep green. Later on, red buds open into urn-shaped deep pink flowers displayed in 6” long panicles. A rhododendron relative, the 10’ bush appreciates shaded sites with moist, acidic, well-drained soil.

USDA Zone 6-9.



Items listed on the website are what we have available this season. Items appearing in the Raintree catalog that are sold out do not appear on the website. If you are interested in reserving a sold out item for next year, call us at 1-800-391-8892.
LATE PLANTING INSTRUCTIONS: If you live in an area where temperatures are now often above 75 degrees, it is too warm to plant bare root plants. You can call us and reserve for next season. For those of you in cooler areas, our bare root plants area dormant in cold storage and are in great condition to dig in and grow for you.

We advise soaking the roots for 24 hours before planting.
