Pieris Mountain Fire
Unusual Evergreen Looks Great Year-Round
Primarily grown as an ornamental plant, the Pieris Mountain Fire sports many interesting features. It is perfect for the gardener looking for an unusual specimen plant for a shady corner.
From late winter into early spring, Pieris Mountain Fire lives up to its name because it looks like it has been set ablaze when new leaf growth brings a pop of flaming red tones. This unique effect can occur again in mid-summer under the right conditions, and is truly out of this world.
If that wasn't enough, the most remarkable aspect of Mountain Fire is that pinkish-white flower clusters form in unusual hanging chains that dangle from the plant like crystals on a chandelier. It is truly an exquisite and dramatic sight and uncommon in the plant world.
These densely packed, bell-shaped blooms are delicate and deliciously fragrant, and will typically last for over a month. Pieris Mountain Fire is an absolute eye-catcher that deserves to be put on center stage in a very important spot in your garden.
Growing to a mature height of 4 feet with a 4 foot spread, this slightly arched shrub can easily be shaped into a lovely low privacy hedge. It also fits nicely into tight spots as a foundation plant, or artfully established in small groupings for a delightfully decorative accent.
This beautiful evergreen is very hardy, drought tolerant and even deer and pest resistant. Next to no work is required to keep Pieris Mountain Fire looking great. Simply sit back and enjoy the fireworks!
