New Haven Spring 2010

Aren't these fun? Not sure what this plant is. It is not familiar to me.

It's a Pieris japonica, also known as Andromeda:
It's a broadleaf evergreen, similar in habit and requirements to a rhododendron or mountain laurel, and yes, it's a lovely thing,

Pieris is right...and yes, it if often called lily of the valley tree. I had some lovely examples when I lived in Connecticut. Alas, they are shade and acid soil lovers, neither of which I have here. :(
