Pieris phillyreifolia

Climbing Heath

This rare and unusual plant native to the southeastern U.S. is a small evergreen shrub in cultivation. In it's native swamp habitat it becomes a vine on Pond Cypress (Taxodium ascendens) trees where it grows high up the tree under the loose outer bark and sends out horizontal branches which appear to come from the cypress! It has showy compound racemes of little white bell-like flowers and narrow dark green leaves about 1 inch long. Grow in acid soil as you would a related Azalea, Rhododendron. or Blueberry.
