Pieris Katsura Andromeda
The deep burgundy red new growth of Katsura Andromeda is spectacular, and the pink bell-shaped blossoms in spring make this a striking shrub in any garden or landscape. It can grow to 3' tall and 3' wide and its dense growth habit make this a very versatile plant. Use it for hedgerows, mass planting, accents, container growing, or slopes.
We recommend annual pruning after each bloom. It prefers full sun to partial shade. Make sure to plant it in well-draining soil, as it has sensitive roots that will not tolerate standing water. Our Starter Soil Kit is an ideal option for this plant. Hardy to -20°F when protected from windchill.
