Pieris japonica 'Cavatine' is one of the best dwarf forms of this useful shrub, consistently receiving the highest rating in GPP evaluations. This small, compact evergreen has year-round interest. Pale green winter flower buds contrast well with its dark green foliage. In mid-March it is almost completely covered in bell-shaped, creamy white blooms, providing a source of nectar for early-season pollinators such as mason bees. Dwarf lily-of-the-valley shrub makes a beautiful low informal hedge, and it can be used to hide the leggy stems of taller shrubs. It is well adapted to container culture and can grow for several years in a pot.
