Lily of the Valley Bush Overview
Pieris is a small family of 7 species of evergreen shrubs in the heather family. They are compact shrubs with spirals of lance-shaped or oval leaves that are often brightly coloured when young. Pieris flowers are produced on stalks and are shaped like typical heath-like bells. Some species are popular as garden plants for their year-round interest and are best grown in an acid soil, in a sheltered position. They tolerate shade well, which makes them useful in less sunny spots and woodland gardens. Pieris are native to East and South Asia as well as parts of Eastern North America and the Caribbean. Some are commonly known as Lily-of-the-Valley Bush or Lily-of-the-Valley Shrub.
