It is hard to find small, slow-to-grow, evergreen shrubs for the smaller landscape. Pieris japonica 'Bisbee's Dwarf' is exactly that and more. Its dark green leaves are always attractive with a semi-glossy appearance. In the spring the newly emerging leaves are reddish before they assume their adult color. The urn-shaped flowers are plentiful and fragrant. They hang in dense terminal panicles that mature from the top downward. This plant was introduced by Mr. Horatio Bisbee of Ware, MA and was one of two seedlings that he purchased from a New Jersey nursery some time in the 1960's.
