Neutral jkom51 On Jan 23, 2003, jkom51 from Oakland, CA (Zone 9b) wrote:

'Flaming Silver' is a lovely sport from Pieris 'Forest Flame' (aka P. 'Havila'). New growth is pinkish red, variegation on foliage turns from initial pink to chartreuse, then matures to creamy silver-white. Growth is slow and compact although it grows faster than the P. japonica 'Variegata' variety.
