Andromeda 'Passion' - 2 Gal.

$39.99

Pieris japonica 'Passion'

There is nothing in the plant world to raise a gardener's passion that an introduced plant that does something new, different or better. 'Passion' is decidedly one of those plants that injects some pizzazz and hot flower color into the mostly white blooming world of Andromeda. 'Passion' is a heavy blooming beauty that sets upright to slightly pendulous strings of small flower buds at the end of almost every branch. These buds open in mid to late April with a show of deep, cerise-pink, bell shaped flowers in such numbers it could turn the Andromeda world upside down! While other varieties have pink flowers, 'Passion' has the deepest pink ones by far and in numbers that put these other pink pretenders to shame all on a dense, round, well-behaved plant with lustrous, deep green, evergreen foliage. It is the perfect deer resistant winner for a foundation planting or border planting in your landscape especially in a half day sun area that has winter wind protection.
