Pieris japonica
Yes thts the one!!
The leaves have lost there lovely red colour - is there a reason for it??

That is the nature of the plant,and the new foliage always turns from red to green.
so you have no problem with your Pieris,but it is a shame it doesn't stay red though.Mine is green now too.Everytime you get some more new foliage,it will be red .hope this helps...
