A little information about this beautiful plant for you…

Pieris Care And Planting – How To Grow Japanese Andromeda Bushes

By Jackie Carroll

Pieris japonica goes by many names, including Japanese andromeda, lily-of-the-valley shrub and Japanese pieris. Whatever you call it, you’ll never be bored with this plant. The foliage changes color throughout the seasons, and in late summer or fall, long, dangling clusters of colorful flower buds appear. The buds open into dramatic, creamy-white blossoms in spring. The ever-changing face of this shrub is an asset to any garden. Read on to find out how to grow Japanese andromeda.

Andromeda Plant Info

Japanese andromeda is an evergreen shrub with many uses in the landscape. Use it in shrub groupings or as afoundation plant, or let it stand alone as a specimen plant that few other shrubs can rival.

The plant is a bit fussy about soil and light exposure, but if azaleas and camellias do well in the area, Japanese andromeda will probably thrive too.

Pieris Care and Planting

The best Pieris japonica growing conditions include a site with full to partial shade and rich, well-drained soil with plenty of organic matter and an acidic pH. If your soil isn’t particularly rich, work in a thick layer of compostbefore planting. If necessary, amend the soil with an azalea or camellia fertilizer to add nutrients and adjust the pH level. Japanese andromeda bushes won’t tolerate alkaline soil.

Water the shrub often enough to keep the soil lightly moist at all times. Water slowly, allowing the soil to soak up as much moisture as possible.

Fertilize in winter and early summer with a fertilizer designed for acid-loving plants, using the amount recommended on the package. Fertilizers designed for azaleas and camellias are ideal.

Japanese andromeda bushes grow to a height of 10 feet unless you plant compact varieties. It has a naturally attractive shape, and it’s best to let it grow without pruning as much as possible. If you need to neaten the plant, however, do so after the flowers fade.
