Mountain Fire Bush - Pieris Japonica

In the spring this bush flowers and they look like lily of the valley. The new leaves are bright red and then they fade to a bronze color and then turn green.

Is that Tansy in there too..? I've never planted it but I have a lot around. very tenacious plant, The old herb gardeners say it repells squash bug, Japanese beetle, and the imported cabbage worm.

Yes it is Tansy Lori. I have both the regular and the fern leaf. It sure is invasive but I manage to keep it contained to two large clumps.

Yep! my sentiments exactly...if it gets out of hand rip it out!
