Flowers of Scotland - Spring


Pieris Forestii "Flame of the Forest" is well named with the new growth of its bright crimson bracts appearing in the spring. Sometimes a late frost can turn these tender leaves brown but, undaunted, the plant just produces more new ones to replace those which have been damaged. The Pieris Forestii is named after the Scottish botanist and plant hunter George Forrest (1873-1932).
