Its white fragrant flowers are bell shaped, up to 1cm long, arranged in racemes or panicles which are up yo 15cm long. Its fruit is a loculicidal capsules.
Pieris japonica, commonly known as Japanes Pieris, is native to east China, Taiwan and Japan. In its native habitat it grows in thickets on mountain slopes.
With its interesting branching habit, attractive foliage, unique showy blooms and resistance to deer, Japanese pieris is an excellent addition to partially shaded areas of the garden.
Preferring moist, acidic, well-drained soil, it works well in a border, as a specimen, or for informal screening and hedging. Toward the margins of its hardiness range it requires protection from harsh conditions such as wind, drought, and severe heat or cold.
