Japanese Lavender Heath Forest Flame

A real eye-catcher for the spring garden. This early flowering shrub, Pieris japonica 'Forest Flame', is very beautiful. The fabulous leaves, which are red in bud and later turn pink, are not all. The flowers in spring, when many plants have not yet awakened from winter, hang in clusters on the plant.

What are shade bells suitable for?

Originally from Japan, the plant fits very well in a Japanese or Far Eastern garden and is not only beautiful in a border, but also lovely in a pot on your patio. Japanese lavender heather grows as a shrub and can accordingly also be used as a hedge plant or as an area planting.

Lavender heather in the garden

The evergreen Forest Flame, also called Japanese Lavender Heath, is a small dense bushy shrub with a height of 50 - 75cm. The leaves are glossy green, whorled and clustered on the shoots. The new shoots are bright red, later light red and becoming lighter and lighter. The colouring lasts a long time and is beautiful in combination with the white flower panicles that appear in April and May. The eye-catching and long flower panicles are already in bud on this garden plant from autumn onwards, which gives it a beautiful ornamental value even in winter. Garden plants such as Japanese lavender heather require an acidic to neutral soil and a sunny to semi-shady location.
