I thought so too my first year with it then I found that they bud in the fall and carry them through the winter. Mine still didn't bloom last year but after I put it in the ground it did better and bloomed this year.
I like this variety better than the ones I see locally. 😊👍 I was actually just sitting and thinking if I could add one to my garden but I think it would clash with my pink, purple and blue colour scheme.
@ublaszko I hope so 😛 some strange going’s on in my garden. Had a flower open on my dwarf rhododendron a couple days ago 🤣 chrysanthemums are in bloom already 🙈 still haven’t learned about what does what when 😂
You'd be better off talking to someone in your area about pieris and their buds. I know they'll grow here, they are common-ish but they are in the ground and mine's in a pot so I bring it under cover to keep the roots from freezing. I'm wondering if I should just leave it where it is. I really ought to decide where it should go and plant the darn thing!
Will be leaving the spent flowers alone from now on 😛 so decorative! #pieris
They are lovely Kerry. I have never seen a Pieris in bloom. Maybe next year. 😍😍
They’re pretty too!
@hkyfvr thanks Diane 😊 yours was new this year?
@gjones so sweet how they turn upwards as they dry out 🥰
Very welcome. Yes it was new this year. 😍
@hkyfvr should get your flowers next year for sure. They usually start to grow their flowering bits around now so keep a watch out for what look like grapeless bunches of grapes 🤣
Sounds very exciting. I do have one red branch of leaves that are pretty. I will watch for the grapeless grapes 🤣
@hkyfvr the new growth is such a great colour 😍 I had no idea how to describe them but that’s pretty accurate, as you’ll see 😆
