In Bloom: Andromeda

Edith J. Carrier Arboretum: Andromeda

Andromeda flowers look like tiny, pale pink bells

Genus: Pieris

Andromeda, also known as Lily of the Valley shrub, is one of the prettiest broadleaf evergreen shrubs. They are related to rhododendron and have cascades of small flowers and lovely evergreen foliage.

Fun Fact: In the EJC Arboretum, there is a bench situated right under the Andromeda flowers.  What a perfect place to sit and enjoy spring!
