Do we have to cut off the white bunch of flowers on the pieres to make the plant more healthy and also to make the leaves go red. thank you



No, absolutely not! If you have lots of flowers, its likely you've chosen a cultivar of P. japonica - these are not so good at producing new red leaves, but are much better at flowering. If you want really red new leaf growth, you need to choose a cultivar of P. forrestii.
