  • Flowering later than other varieties of pieris, 'Prelude' produces pink buds that bloom in sprays of pure white flowers that glow above the dark green foliage. New leaf growth has a pink tint adding to the overall beauty. 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.
