This plant possesses all the great gifts of other Pieris including deer resistance, dense rounded form, and April bloom, but adds a distinctly noticeable twist: amazing, deep pinkish-red flowers! 'Valley Valentine' exits the winter with deep red flower buds held in drooping strands above shiny, deep green foliage providing the start of a long, early spring of color that culminates in late April as buds open to strings of flowers that last into mid-May. New foliage emerges bronze, providing even more color on this evergreen that is perfect for partial shade areas.

Growing & Maintenance Tips  

Likes well-drained, moist soil and mulch. Prune immediately after flowering in late spring by cutting branches to just above a set of leaves. Protect from winter winds.
