Plant Spotlight: Mountain Snow™ Pieris
Three reasons why we love Mountain Snow™ Pieris...
1. More heat tolerant than standard Pieris japonica, Mountain Snow offers interest in the garden with both foliage and showy blooms.
2. New bronze-colored foliage matures to dark green; attractive, pendulous flower buds appear in summer and persist through winter before opening in early spring with beautiful ivory white flowers.
3. Mountain Snow is a low maintainance shrub that works well as an accent, container plant or a mass planting. It is also prized as a favorite ornamental in the South.
