Pieris Forest Flame


Pieris Forest Flame

Last year this had hardly any flowers. My house faces North West, so I moved the pot, so it was against the wall. I hoped it would protect it from the weather a bit. It worked!!

It's amazing isn't it PG how moving a plant can make such a big difference. I've done it here and 'things happen' and it's brilliant!

This Pieris is looking wonderful so no wonder you're chuffed:0)

I moved it backwards about 4', that's all! It has to still face the same direction, as I only have one area to put my pots.

Thanks for posting this. I have a Pieris in a pot but it never seems to do well. It grows, but the flowers never come out like yours. I will try your trick and see what happens.

Lovely! I've just bought one which looks very similar but it's not "forest flame". Sainsbury's (unusually for them) had got the labels mixed up. It's flowering, like yours but it looks to me as if there are two different ones in the pot. They might be "debutante" and "bonfire" but then again, they might not! I might get it planted today, but soil-changing etc. is involved...Incidentally, I bought it because the one I have already thrives in a similar position - part sun, part shade and a somewhat icy blast in Winter! (Balmy Dorset?)

You may have got 2 for the price of 1 there Volval then!
I have 2 other Pieris, Little Heath and Little Heath Green, they too have thrived in the same position this one is in.
