In front of the Russell House are two beds of ‘Brouer’s Beauty’ Pieris {P.x ‘Brouwer’s Beauty’} whose exposed flower buds have turned a dark red. These buds will open in late April and remain very attractive throughout our winter. I consider this to be our most ornamental shrub for the late fall and winter seasons.
