Japanese pieris



Japanese pieris (Pieris japonica). The lovely evergreen that produces pendulous clusters of bell-shaped flowers in spring also has a fall and winter interest: The reddish buds of next year's flowers appear late in the growing season and remain through winter.

Dwarf fothergilla (Fothergilla gardenii) and large fothergilla (F. major). Bottlebrush flowers appear in spring on both versions of this deciduous shrub, and in late autumn, its foliage goes out in a blaze of oranges, yellows and reds.

Oakleaf hydrangea (Hydrangea quercifolia). Its reddish, plum and burgundy fall foliage helps make this broad-spreading deciduous shrub into a multi-season plant.

Burning bush (Euonymus alatus). Its brilliant red fall color turned this deciduous shrub into a ubiquitous, overplanted landscape item, but the burning bush's invasiveness in some areas should discourage its use.
