It is a member of the heath family, Ericaceae, which also includes rhododendrons and blueberries.
Japanese pieris typically grows to a height of 1-2mt and has an attractive, compact habit with glossy, dark green leaves. In early spring, the shrub produces clusters of delicate, bell-shaped flowers that hang in pendulous clusters. The flowers can be white, pink, or red and are often fragrant.
Pieris japonica is a popular ornamental shrub in gardens and landscapes due to its attractive foliage and early spring blooms. It prefers acidic soil and partial shade, making it a good choice for woodland gardens or shaded borders. However, it can also tolerate full sun with adequate moisture.
