The Passion Party™ Passion Frost Pieris is a beautiful plant that provides a burst of color in the spring, and the variegated foliage continues to put on a show all year long. Delicate, bell-shaped pendant blooms in a deep pink hue grow in a string formation. The flowers emerge in late April and last throughout the spring. The glossy dark green foliage has creamy white edging, and as an evergreen, the foliage will stay in place during the winter.
Plant in beds, mass plantings, or use as a hedge or specimen planting. The Passion Party™ Passion Frost Pieris has a compact growth habit and will look lovely along a foundation wall or as the centerpiece of a bed. This hardy plant holds up nicely during the heat of summer and will continue to look striking and lush. Deer do not favor this evergreen, so it is an excellent option for year-round color. The Passion Party™ Passion Frost Pieris is a perennial in USDA zones 6 through 8.
Passion Party™ Passion Frost Pieris Care
The Passion Party™ Passion Frost Pieris craves morning sun and afternoon shade, so select a spot that receives 4 to 6 hours of sunlight. This plant needs moist, well-drained, acidic soil. Water weekly to maintain consistently damp soil. This plant will do best when planted in an area protected from the wind.
Apply a layer of organic mulch around the base of the plant to provide some extra nutrition, keep the soil damp, and prevent weeds. Apply a slow-release fertilizer in the spring before the flowers appear. Remove spent flowers right away to keep the plant looking tidy and ensure abundant blooms the following year.
Passion Party™ Passion Frost Pieris Spacing
The Passion Party™ Passion Frost Pieris has a compact growth habit and is a bit of a slow grower but will reach 4 to 5 feet high and spread 2 to 3 feet. Space plants 2 to 3 feet apart to create a continuous hedge or mass planting.
