Pieris japonica 'Little Heath Green'
Size: 6-9 inch
Growth Habit: low mounding
USDA Zone: 5-8
Exposure: filtered to full sun
Growing Conditions: moist, rich, well-drained soil
Comments: New leaves emerge burgundy red in spring maturing to green throughout the summer. Late summer typically brings another flush of new growth. This very nice foliage plant becomes flat-topped mound. Nice along paths and in the front of shrub beds. Rarely flowers, though the 2-toned foliage goes a long way to compensate for that and it lasts most of the year. Great foundation plant.
