Pieris japonica 'Ralto' PP19331

 

A creamy yellow-white variegation on these dark evergreen leaves make this Pieris an easy edition to the landscape, even before the flowers are factored into consideration. A gorgeous red is a different flavor from the usual white, with the same chain-like racemes of downward facing, bell-like flowers. Pair with another white Pieris like Mountain Snow for a color contrast that can’t be ignored. Easily suitable as a low hedge, specimen, or container plant.

Good companion plants are Mountain Laurel, Azalea, and Paperbush as a nearby speciman.
