Product Details



    Pieris Japonica 'Planow' Mountain Snow™' is a fast and moderate growing shrub that can be grown in USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 4B through 8B. It matures to an average height of 3 feet to 4 feet and an average width of 2 feet to 3 feet, depending on climate and other environmental factors. It prefers growing in a location that provides shade or filtered sun and grows best when planted in loam, clay or silt soil that is well drained or moderately drained. In the spring Mountain Snow Pieris produces white flowers. The foliage is medium green and dark green in color. It attracts butterflies, visual attention and songbirds / birds and is resistant to deer, drought, insects, diseases, mildew and heat.

    Mountain Snow Pieris can be useful in the landscape along woodland borders, in foundation plantings, as a background, around decks, swimming pools, and other outdoor living areas, under a shade tree, in landscape beds or islands or in small groupings and also in theme gardens, cottage gardens, butterfly gardens or shade gardens.

    Noteworthy Characteristics

    Finally, a more heat-tolerant and less-finicky Pieris japonica! If you've tried growing Pieris in your landscape or gardens in the past without much luck, Mountain Snow™, hailing from the Southern Living Plant Collection, is here to change that!

    More heat tolerant than standard Pieris japonica, Mountain Snow™ offers interest in the garden with both foliage and showy blooms. Right now, the plants we have in stock at the nursery are either covered in their beautiful, cascading tassels of white, bell-shaped flowers, or are already sending forth their stunning, orange new leaves, which eventually age to a handsome dark green. During summer, attractive, pendulous flower buds appear that will persist through winter before opening in early next spring.

    Uses

    Single specimen, groupings, flowering shrub borders, shrub borders, natural hedge, home foundation plantings, shade gardens, woodland gardens, Japanese gardens, cottage gardens, 

    Culture & Care Tips

    Part shade or all day dappled sunlight is best. Morning sun with some afternoon shade is perfect. Not too picky about soil provided it is well-drained, however, similar to Azaleas, it prefers a fertile, acidic soil that is rich in organic matter.  SEE: How To Test For Soil Drainage
