Japanese Andromeda Brouwers Beauty (Pieris x ‘Brouwers Beauty’)
Japanese Andromeda Brouwers Beauty
So much amazing year-round color Japanese Andromeda ‘Brouwer’s Beauty’ (Pieris x. ‘Brouwer’s Beauty’) on one compact, urn-shaped, evergreen shrub!
Brouwers Beauty starts off in the early spring with a heavy flush of purplish-red buds in winter that opens in an explosion of lovely white flowers in spring. Like tiny white bells!
Pollinators adore these blooms as much as you will! Brouwer’s Beauty is a great choice for an early blooming, hardy plant and an especially deer-resistant, multi-use landscape shrub.
Dark-green, glossy foliage and dense, compact growth is the perfect backdrop for the brilliant reddish buds and lovely white blossoms!
Sometimes called Lily-of-the-Valley shrub due to the flower similarity and fragrance, Brouwers Beauty has a slower growth and a refined habit. Slower growing means less work, less pruning, without lots of attention, keeping its shape with ease!
An excellent choice for the urban landscape and today’s smaller lots. Perfect for a low hedge or privacy screen around seating areas and fire pit.
Evergreen shrubs are welcome additions to mixed-shrub borders, as amazing, vibrant backdrops to other smaller shrubs and perennials!
Brouwers Beauty creates superb foundation plantings for year-round curb appeal! Anchor your garden beds with steady evergreen, plus colors and blooms for a lovely focal point and accent.
For best results, Brouwers Beauty thrives in moderately fertile, organically rich, humusy, and slightly acidic soil. Best in well-drained soil and do not like standing water.
Once established, Andromeda is highly drought tolerant and are great Xeriscaping and fire-wise plantings.
Doing best in full sun in cooler zones and partial shade where the southern summer sun is intense. Give it a little TLC and protection in winter until established. Japanese Andromeda benefits greatly from mulch around the base of the root system to insulate the roots and hold in more moisture.
The faded flowers can be pruned off at the base of the truss if desired. Because of the slower-growing nature, it is rare you’ll need to prune except to control size. If that is the case, prune right after flowering so you won’t miss the fragrant spring show!
