I agree that Pieris Brouwer's Beauty lives up to its name. It is very floriferous. I must admit though, I do prefer those cultivars with red new foliage. The pic to follow shows just how full of buds a young plant can be.

One variety that is perfect for capturing the pure beauty of the Japanese Pieris is 'Brouwer's Beauty'. Producing blossoms of white, this variety is actually a hybrid of the Japanese and Mountain Pieris (P. japonica x P. floribunda.) The new foliage of this evergreen shrub is also of interest due to its soft yellowish coloring.
