Pieris japonica 'Mountain Fire' is an outstanding cultivar of the Japanese pieris, famed for its fiery red young foliage that emerges in spring. This dramatic flush of color gradually fades to a glossy dark green as leaves mature. Accompanied by clusters of white, bell-shaped flowers that hang delicately from the branches, 'Mountain Fire' truly lives up to its name with its vibrant display. This evergreen shrub is a spectacular choice for gardeners looking to introduce year-round interest and a burst of color to their landscapes.

Why We Like It

  • Intense red new growth creates a fiery display in the garden.
  • Offers year-round interest with its evergreen nature.
  • Delicate white flowers in spring provide a beautiful contrast to the bold foliage.

What to Know

  • Best grown in partial to full shade to protect the vibrant new growth from scorching.
  • Prefers well-draining, acidic soil. An application of ericaceous compost can be beneficial.
  • Maintain consistent moisture in the soil, avoiding both waterlogging and drought.
  • Monitor for pests such as lace bugs and aphids, and protect from root rot in overly wet conditions.
  • If pruning is desired, do so after flowering to avoid removing the next year's bloom.

  • New growth: Fiery red.
  • Mature leaves: Glossy dark green.

Flowering Months

  • Early to mid-spring, typically around March to April.

Eventual Height and Spread
