this is a naturally suckering tree anyway but cutting it back simply makes it go haywire as you have now discovered.

every shoot you see needs to be sprayed with strong stength glyphosate but not in the lawn.  In the lawn a combination of lawn weedkiller and mowing....I would use secateurs or scissors to cut every shoot seen to ground level and do this as often as you can.

this is definitely not a plant for the garden.  Never be tempted even by its brilliant red/yellow/ orange leaves in autumn

Pieris needs acid soil too.  It's the lime in the soil....lime tends to permeate throughout any acid compost. adding ericaceous compost is not enough.

a ph test will determine if your soil is acid or alkaline. cheap enough test kit but essential to know what soil you have somapop 

you could plunge an acid lover in the soil if in a pot though

Somapop, nothing to lose by trying it in a pot of ericaceous.  It may recover during the spring.  I would also spray with sequestered iron.  If it recovers then you can consider planting it out but test new site first.

ah Dsve!  Great minds
