Pieris Mountain Fire Shrubs for Sale Online

Pieris Mountain Fire, also know as the Japanese Andromeda Mountain Fire, is a partial-shade garden show-stopper! Pieris Mountain Fire offers many unique features: from late winter into spring, the foliage has flaming red tones, and in summer, as it ages, it turns burgundy. In winter, it is thoroughly evergreen and stays that way until red leaves arrive in spring.

The spring foliage mixed with the leaves of pure green from the previous year, so it looks almost like red flowers blooming on the bush. It doesn’t take long for the red leaves to give way to fragrant clusters of pinkish-white flowers that form in unusual hanging chains and dangle from the plant.
