Pieris ‘Katsura’

Pieris japonica ‘Katsura’ was selected for its continuous new growth through spring and summer, large glossy leaves that are wine-red in color before turning green with age, and rose-colored flowers. In late spring, blooms cascade over green foliage, and new growth afterwards comes in glossy red again. The elegant flowers, born on rose-colored racemes are lilac-white with a lilac skirt. The habit of this broad upright bush is compact and reaches 4’ to 5’ high in 10 years.

Pieris ‘Katsura’ thrives in well drained, humus rich, lime free soil similar to its native mountain forest habitat in sun or light shade. ‘Katsura’ makes a stunning addition to a Japanese themed garden.
