Pieris phillyreifolia Scrub eco-type (Scrub Andromeda)

Ericaceae

A native of the hot, dry sandhill scrub of the western Florida panhandle, it is likely much more tolerant of drought than its swamp-dwelling counterpart in northern peninsular Florida. Makes a low mound of evergreen teardrop shaped foliage that gets smothered with white flowers resembling those of its close relative, the blueberry (but lacks edible fruit).
