Lily-of-the-valley shrubs are very popular ericaceous plants with attractive foliage and abundant flowering.

Little Heath is a dwarf variety of pieris. It is a neat little shrub with short, elongated, pointed leaves of mid green colour with white margins. New leaves emerge orange to copper red. It grows very slowly, forming a low, compact shrub. No pruning required. It dislikes excess amount of heavy, wet snow in its middle due to soft branches that may break under its weight. Non flowering.

Ericaceous plants require soil that is light, acidic, and constantly moist (not wet). If your garden soil is too heavy do not dig a deep hole but make a shallow and wide bed topped up with a good mixture of peat, fine bark chips, and leaf (forest) litter. Keep the soil moist by mulching. Slow-release fertilizers are advised. Expected hardiness is about -27°C (USDA zone 5b).
