From Master Gardener Donna Franklin's garden: Pieris showing the "flaming" leaves and clusters of flowers. Pieris is a cousin of the Rhododendron, being in the same plant family, Ericaceae. the Heather Family.

In this species the leaves start red, then go through several color changes, ending up dark green.
