3g Temple Bells Japanese Pieris
Pieris japonica 'Temple Bells'


Grows 3-5' ht & sp 

'Temple Bells' have tassel-like clusters of pinkish buds that open to relatively large, slightly fragrant white flowers in early spring. Its leaves are bronze colored when young, maturing to glossy dark green. With its tiered habit, peeling bark, attractive foliage, unique showy blooms, decorative winter buds, and resistance to deer, 'Temple Bells' makes an excellent specimen or border plant for a site with moist, acidic, well-drained soil, and protection from cold winds and harsh sunlight. These slow-growing shrubs work well when planted in masse, as borders, in mixed shrub beds and as specimen plants.
