  • The new foliage growth of 'Katsura' is a deep red contrasting with the dark glossy green leaves of last year. Branches become laden with racemes of pink flowers blooming in early spring. 'Katsura' is quite vigorous and a medium to fast grower. Pieris is a very easy-care shrub when planted in the right location. Although hardy, it's best planted in a spot sheltered from biting winds in winter to protect its evergreen leaves. It will like part shade, not deep shade. Moisture is important so planting in organically rich soil, mulching, and regular watering are called for. Pieris are considered lime haters. Feed only with a slow release food for acid loving plants. It won't be fond of quick shots of liquid food that can burn roots.
