Interstella® Lily of the Valley shrub

Whether you call it Japanese andromeda or lily of the valley shrub, Interstella® pieris will have you seeing stars when it bursts into bloom with thousands of lantern-like ruby-colored blooms in early spring. The long-lasting display is followed by the emergence of dramatic red new growth, and handsome evergreen foliage secures year-round presence and beauty. Thrives in the same conditions as rhododendrons.
