Lily-of-the-valley shrub is a herald of spring with the new blossoms being one of the first flowers to open. Pieris japonica 'Valley Rose' has strikingly beautiful, two-toned flowers. Each tiny, urn-shaped bloom has a deep rose pink cap that fades to blushed white at the tip. The full, profuse flowers gracefully cascade down this shrub, almost hiding the evergreen foliage. As the flowers fade, bronzy new growth add an extra sparkle to the garden. This clone was originally selected at the North Willamette Research and Extension Center, near Aurora, Oregon, for its unusual flower color and strong disease resistance. Its slow growth and refined habit make it an excellent choice for the urban landscape. Pieris are a favorite and important food source for our native pollinator, the mason bee.
