Answer: Pieris is a broad-leaved, evergreen shrub commonly used as a foundation planting. It prefers a moist, well-drained, acidic soil rich in humus, and a location with light shade. At planting time, add some peat moss and bonemeal to the soil. Since the plant is relatively slow-growing, an annual mulch of compost should provide plenty of nutrients.
