Andromeda - Lily of the Valley Shrub - Pieris japonica by 

This is a very handsome shrub that, when happy, covers itself almost completely in blossoms. It is related to rhododendrons and can grow up to 9 feet tall; it grows slowly, however. The spring blossoms are bell-shaped and white to pink. and not much perfume. The evergreen leaves remain on the plant all year.

As they become ever more popular, more varieties are popping up.

Give them full sun to partial shade, rich, moist, slightly acidic soil that is well drained. If you have hungry deer around, you’ll need to take steps to protect this pretty addition to your garden – deer love to eat it!

This design was created in Photoshop with various color layers and a background layer.

I love nature, science, poetry, prose, art, music – you name it! Now that I’m retired, time is mine to spend as I wish (pretty much), and I wish to take pictures of our natural world.

Bringing the outdoors in for others to see, especially those who may not get the opportunity to wander next to a pond, fish at the beach, or tramp in the woods, is a pleasure. I hope to build a window to the wonders of nature that fill our everyday lives.

    beautiful work, I have two different pieris in my garden, they flower at different time too

  • They are lovely! I know that more and more cultivars are becoming available and although they are of Japanese origin and alien to the USA, there is no evidence of these shrubs being invasive – lovely for such a beautiful addition to someone’s garden:>). Thank you for the nice comment and the have:>)
