Pieris Japonica Debutante are evergreen shrubs with dense and compact bushy growing habit, that bloom profusely in spring season. These are dwarf sized or low-growing attractive bushes, ideal for shrub borders or mixed borders. Their dark green foliage is highly ornamental, creating brilliant contrast for the flowers and changing shades from spring to summer. These shrubs will reach an average height of 2 feet.
Also known as the Lily-of-the-valley bush, this Pieris Debutante flushes creamy urn-shaped white flowers with a yellow tint, produced in masses on upright panicles in spring. Its narrow elliptic leaves emerge red-burgundy in colour and slowly maturing into dark green. This interesting foliage keeps the plant lively throughout the year, providing year-round interest for your garden.
These are hardy plants that can tolerate full sun and even grow well in partial shade. They flower from March to May and young flowers may require protection from frost. It is an ericaceous plant that demands moist and acidic soil, that is well-drained regularly. Mix ericaceous compost with the potting soil when growing Pieris in large containers to keep the plant look healthy.
Pieris bushes will require little pruning right after the flowering. This includes basic trimming to keep them in proper shape and removing any damaged shoots. Their leaves and flowers are mildly toxic if ingested. These are low maintenance shrubs that can be grown as a specimen plant.
Use them in groups since they are ideal for mixed borders. Their Japanese origin makes them perfect for Japanese style gardens and can also be used in garden containers. Pieris Debutante is an excellent small flowering shrub that will brighten up your patio in all the seasons.
