Pink Flowered Pieris

Pieris japonica ‘Flamingo’

Just a short post today. I don’t feel well but am going to work anyway. It feels like someone poured cement in head and it set up over night. I thought you might enjoy a couple of shots from the estate’s Pieris collection. They have about 35 cultivars that I have collected over the years. These are two of the pink flowered types that I think will become more and more popular. Some people call ‘Valley Valentine’ a red flowered cultivar. They also have several pink budded ones but they are not as dramatic as these. Both appear to be slow growers.
