Potted Pieris (Pieris japonica (Lily of the valley bush))

Finally my pieris is in the pink! The little white flowers will be emerging very soon by the looks of things. It’s planted in a big pot along with a skimmia. The skimmia is started to flower too plus lots of new growth.

Kate, I can see a few flowers top right. But I think the flowers usually appear before the new red growth.

Thanks Paul.
Karen, thanks. I’ve had another look, yes, you’re right there. I’ve noticed them now! How on earth I missed them I don’t know! Too busy focusing on taking a clear-ish pic!

Our pier is is next to a skimmia, they seem to complement each other very well. I like both of them a lot.

They do compliment each other. I love that new red growth.

Thank you Dd, what a real shame..it must’ve have been quite sad to lose a whole collection, never mind just one plant ☹️
