Friday Flowers: Pieris

Every now and then, we try to feature flowers in Friday Flowers that may be hidden gems, and today we’ll be taking a look at the beautiful pieris! A romantic and dramatic complement to whatever flower they’re used with, they remind me quite a bit of lily of the valley with their bell-shaped buds and curving, multi-budded stems. Take a look at how pieris is used in these gorgeous arrangements!
