Special Attributes

Little Heath Pieris, also known as Lily of the Valley Shrub or Andomeda, is a delightful evergreen flowering shrub that offers outstanding four-season interest in the garden. In spring, flaming red to pink new growth emerges at the ends of branches above attractive mounds of variegated white and green dainty little leaves. Before this colorful new growth emerges are racemes of fragrant, bell-shape white flowers. The foliage takes on a delightful rose blush color when cooler temperatures arrive in fall. Makes an attractive sort of bonsai effect as it ages.

Note: We don't have long term experience with this variety so are not sure about mature height and width over the long term. Some sources say 2 feet tall while others say 5 or 6 feet tall. We suggest leaving a space of at least 5 feet in diameter for this one to grow.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Little Heath Pieris is ideal for use as an accent or in groupings in shady to partially shaded landscape and woodland borders and home foundation plantings. It's smaller size lends well to container gardens and it's a fine addition to woodland gardens, Asian-theme gardens, and cottage gardens. 

Suggested Spacing: 2.5' for solid hedges and mass plantings;  6' or more for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

Little Heath  Pieris is very easy to grow. Plant in a moist but well drained acidic soil that is rich in organic matter. Add organic compost to heavy clay or poor quality native soils. Pieris prefer growing in a site that provides morning sun with afternoon shade or all-day filtered sun or dappled shade. Avoid direct afternoon sun.
