Pieris Forest Flame

Pieris  Forest Flame (Pieris)

A real favourite...I just wish it would grow a bit faster. Its in the shade so maybe that doesn't suit it too well....but it does make the colours stand out...:o)

Sorry but Its a slow grower. Takes full sun or partial shade, mine did better when I moved its pot to full sun. I change the top third of the ericaceous compost every six months. Yours looks good with lots of new growth.

Thanks for that Drc......I shall get some E compost for it....last year I fed it with Rhododendron and Azalea feed....which it seemed to like.
