They take a little while to establish but once it gets going you won’t have to go looking for it 😊 💞 Love the winter colour, plus being an evergreen too is a bonus @DeborahBanks

Thanks Jason, the close up makes them look like little polished orbs. Love the way close ups make you notice details you would otherwise not have noticed @hebelover

I bought this when out with my Nan over 28 years ago Jane. I grew it in a pot for quite a while but it didn’t do very well. Since it was planted in the border it has really thrived and is quite a size now 😊 @pelly

I originally had mine in the border but it got very sickly as my soil is wrong for it. It is growing, but very slowly 🙂

I think I’ve been lucky. Mine is in a raised bed with 2 evergreen magnolia trees in it. The pieris I planted in the same border is massive. They must enjoy being cosy and cramped! @pelly

Sadly no fragrance to this one Phil...that would have been the icing on the cake! 😊 @philstalder

I was thinking exactly the same thing just a minute ago when I looked out of a window and tree leaves have already started turning red.
