Flower Focus :: Pieris Japonica

Pieris Forest Flame Japanese andromeda

Whenever I see Pieris Japonica (aka Andromeda) I think of my friend, Alex of Exquisite Events in Chicago. Alex LOVES Pieris Japonica! It’s easy to see why, Pieris just adds such an interesting texture, flow and color to flower arrangements.
I spoke with Debbie at Florabundance about availability and she said it is typically available March & April for a few weeks and again in the fall – August, September, October and November. It’s availability definitely fluctuates with the weather.

Here are a selection of lovely designs featuring Pieris Japonica..

  1. Ah, the so called “Lily of the valley” shrub! Love it!
    Even the foliage is quite attractive to use as a cut (especially the variegated cultivars) and that’s available year around!

  2. Yes I LOOOOOOOOVE pieris japonica. One of those I wished they were around the entire year. These pictures are absolutely glorious Alicia.

  3. Each bouquet is prettier than the next!

  4. It’s always such a fun surprise to see something I created show up on Flirty Fleurs in such amazingly talented good company, Alicia! I wanted everyone to know that here in the Pacific Northwest, the local farmers will be harvesting white and pink flowering Pieris japonica in late January through possibly late March. Please visit the http://www.seattlewholesalegrowersmarket.com, our Northwest producers’ cooperative, for availability.
