In keeping with my goal to purchase something colorful each month, I just picked up a new pieris which is not in our database. Per the label, the latin name is Pieris japonica 'Ralto' with a PP19,331 number following (not sure what that is). The tag identifies it as Passion Frost Pieris, which is of course much more descripive (variegated leaves with deep pink blooms). Grower is Ball Ornamentals. How shall I submit this?
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.
