Pieris Japonica ‘Flaming Silver’ is a small, slow-growing, densely branched, evergreen shrub with elliptic, glossy, variegated leaves, bright red when young, turning pink to green with silvery-white margins. Young leaves make a wonderful contrast with older leaves. Clusters of lovely, fragrant, bell-shaped, white flowers, resembling Lily-of-the-Valley, bloom in spring. Pieris Japonica ‘Flaming Silver’ is fussy about its growing conditions and prefers hummus-rich, slightly acidic, moist, well-drained soils, in full sun or partial shade. In alkaline soils, it is susceptible to chlorosis. Once established, somewhat resistant to drought. It needs to be sheltered form harsh, winter winds. It can withstand some urban pollution. Requires occasional maintenance. Pieris Japonica ‘Flaming Silver’ is a beautiful, small shrub, rich in colour, and a great addition to any cottage or urban garden. Perfect as a specimen or accent plant. Great when planted in masses, in beds and borders or banks and slopes. Suitable for growing in containers.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
