Description / Passion Frost Andromeda

This Dutch introduction offers a completely unique look for Pieris (Andromeda), combining stable variegation with deep rosy-pink blooms in great abundance. If you're looking for a lovely little spring-blooming shrub to perk up the garden, Passion Frost is the one you want!

The flowers are most remarkable, deep purple-influenced rose rather than the white or cream of most other Japanese Pieris. They hang in 6-inch clusters all over this very well-branched shrub, demanding attention in mid- to late spring.

As lovely as the blooms are, it's difficult to miss them when they pass and the variegation of the long, pointed leaves really stands out. Boasting a thin white edge and central stripe, the dark green foliage is lush and eye-catching. You can rely on this evergreen to keep its good looks season in, season out.

Passion Frost reaches 4 to 4 1/2 feet high and 2 to 3 feet wide. It makes a fine foundation or hedge subject, and is a standout in the border. Best in full sun in all but the hottest regions, it tolerates a wide range of soil types, including heavy and poor soils. It is very low maintenance once established, and a year-round delight for the landscape. Zones 5-8.
