Pieris japonica 'Little Heath' - dwarf Japanese pieris

Little Heath is a dwarf variety of pieris. It is a neat little shrub with short, elongated, pointed leaves of mid green colour with white margins. New leaves emerge orange to copper red. It grows very slowly and forms a compact shrub without pruning. It likes moist, slightly acidic soil. Once established it withstands temporary summer droughts.

White leaf margins turn pink in autumn. Fully hardy to -29°C (USDA zone 5).
