Pieris japonica 'Passion' - Exclusive New Lily of the Valley Shrub
Availability: In stock
Exclusive Newer variety of the ever popular lily of the valley shrub with stunning cerise-red-pink flowers. Plants are covered in bloom all Spring, making this handsome new evergreen from Gardening Express an absolute must have, and with a name like 'Passion' it surely has to make the ultimate in unexpected Valentines gifts for the gardener in your life.
Pieris 'Passion' has been under development by growers in Holland for more than 15 year years, the initial attraction being the flowers - on most pieris these are usually white in colour - but not this one! There were always a few Pieris with darker flowers, but these, unlike Passion, were usually difficult to cultivate in the Nursery, and far less floriferous.
For the gardener, this bush has the advantage that the flowers are held in raised clusters rather than loose and pendulous, which makes for a better display. As a result of these unique qualities, the plant has received the Flora Holland Award for New Introductions.
Supplied as bushy plants in approx 2-3 litre containers, for masses of flowers this year.
