What Pieris have I got?

GuybrushGuybrush Posts: 172

Hi folks. 

I went to the garden centre today to get a pieris to match one I already have but when I got there, there were more varieties than I thought. I thought I had 'Forest Flame' but there were two in the garden centre and neither looked exactly the same as mine. One had darker mature leaves and blood red young leaves, the other was paler with yellowy leaves. Mine seems to have mottled adult leaves and a salmon pink young leaves. Any ideas?

    Thanks Lantana image

    The plant in the picture is of my one which I've probably had about 10 years or so. Unfortunately the label has long gone. I'm wondering if it's some sort of varigated variety. I'll just have to keep an eye out in the local nurseries and failing that, I can try and do some cuttings.

    Thanks again


  • Yours is exactly the same as mine Guybrush, and mine is "forest flame"

    Certainly is a lovely color.
