Day 43: Andromeda

“A native of Japan, andromeda (Pieris japonica) is a handsome broadleaf evergreen shrub that makes an ideal foundation or specimen plant. It’s a slow-growing shrub that can reach 10 feet tall if left unpruned. In the early spring, andromeda develops arching clusters of white flowers that resemble lily-of-the-valley blooms (there are also pink-flowering forms, as well as types that have reddish or pinkish new growth)” (Source)

  1. So pretty as is the pink version too. It must be lovely to see the shrubs in full flower. I wonder if they have the sweet smell like lily of the valley? Our neighbour has that growing in her garden and used to bring me little bunches in a vase.

    • It really is beautiful! It seems like landscapers really like to use it around apartment buildings. There are quite a few of them on the property where my apartment building is.
