Notes for Identification: Source: floridata - japanese pieris is a pretty little broad-leaf evergreen shrub that goes well in a semi-shady shrub border or in an informal hedge. It is often grown in the woodland garden. With shiny evergreen foliage, showy flowers, and even showy flower buds, japanese pieris makes a good specimen shrub for the light shade under large oaks or pines. The smaller cultivars are suitable for container growth, and the smallest ones are used for bonsai.
