Just now getting flowers on my Pieris
I planted 2 Forest Flames and 1 Mountain Fire Pieris last fall and they had the long flowers on them. I left the flowers on through the winter and then pruned off in the spring.....thus I am just now getting the flowers again. I've read where most flowers bloom in the spring. As mush as I have long awaited these long flowers to get here, should I go ahead and take them back off so they will bloom in the spring or just keep them on during the winter and prune again in March? Also, should I do any fertilizing at all on these plants? I have sandy soil which I thought I amended enough but I've hardly had any red new growth on any of them. Mostly lime green or pale pink new growth.
