Answer: Pieris is tolerant of some sun, but cannot tolerate full afternoon sunshine in your gardening region. Morning sunshine would be fine for them, even filtered afternoon sunshine, but not full afternoon sun. Wait until this fall when rainfall is abundant and temperatures are cooler to move your pieris to a more protected site. They should be relatively easy to dig - the root will not have ventured very far from the original planting hole in just a few short months. Next spring, just as new growth begins, prune away the damaged stems and branches and your new pieris should produce spectacular new foliage. Best wishes with your garden!
