    It looks like a pieris to me. Don't know much about them except they like acid soil, or ericaceous compost if in a container.
  • It is a pieris - I have one of these planted in ordinary garden soil and it's doing really well.

  • many thx  any special treatment required  looking after it what about winter?


  • Well I live in London so our winters aren't too severe.  But it survives quite happily in the front garden, no special protection or anything like that.  It's evergreen and just suddenly springs back to life in late spring.  Very easy - no care at all really.

  • thx all appreciated
