Product Description

‘Temple Bells’ is an attractive medium evergreen shrub grown for its beautiful flowers and fantastic vibrant new growth. Sprays of little bell shaped white flowers appear in spring followed by a flush of new growth that is mostly red with splashes of orange. This new growth hardens off to become a rich green.

Growing up to 1.5mts tall and 1.5mts wide, ‘Temple Bells’ makes a great informal hedge of approx 1mt or as a specimen shrub in any garden. They also do well in containers.

They prefer sheltered full sun or Part shade. (Protect from hot North winds in summer if in full sun) Well drained, slightly acid soil that is well mulched helps to keep the roots cool and retain moisture for the warmer months.

Growing tip: They like a feed in spring when flowering. It doesn’t hurt to give another light feed at the end of summer which helps for the following spring. Pieris ‘Temple Bells’ will thrive in the same conditions as Azaleas, Daphne’s and Gardenias.

  • Spring flowers
  • Frost hardy
  • Vibrant new growth
  • Compact scrub
