Pieris japonica "Little Heath" is a lovely, dwarf-growing shrub with variegated foliage. In early spring the plant develops plenty of flowering buds out of which bright white flowers emerge.
The new foliage shoots are bright, salmon pink to red; they give a second burst of colour to this shrub, just after the flowering in spring.
For best results soak the roots for approx 2 hrs before planting and water well after planting and for the next few weeks. This is a long-lived hardy evergreen shrub. It thrives in acid lime free soil and dislikes chalky soils.
You can plant in autumn or spring. Add peat at time of planting and plant in partial shade. They flower in April or May. This shrub does not like pruning much just cut back old straggly bits in late summer or autumn.
Plant is grown in a 2L pot and is 20cm tall these also need Ericaeous compost.
