This Evergreen Has Showy White Fragrant Flowers with Bronze Colored New Foliage

Mountain Snow Pieris is an evergreen shrub with petite, bell-shaped flowers that dangle down and can last for up to a month. The drape over the top of the shrub is like a snow-topped mountain, thus the name. Pieris blooms emerge in early spring and have a scent similar to the lily of the valley. In fact, it is often referred to as a lily of the valley shrub. New foliage emerges as a reddish-maroon color before turning green.

Mountain Snow Pieris can handle full shade to partial sun. They are slow growers but can get up to 4 feet tall and wide. They adapt well with most soils, even heavy clay. Just don’t plant them somewhere where they will always have wet roots.

Once established, Mountain Snow Pieris is drought tolerant. They would make a unique foundation shrub along the front of your house as long as it doesn’t get too much full sun. They perform best when left to grow naturally. If you do want to prune a Mountain Snow Pieris, it is best to prune in the spring, after the blooms are gone.
