rhododendron yakushimanum


This rhododendron species impresses with very compact, bushy and opaque growth in combination with intense flowering. In comparison to rhododendron hybrids the yakushimanum varieties have an exeptional amount of buds and larger flowering as well. Therefore it´s not unusual that you can barely see the tips of the leaves of a full flowering yakushimanum as the rest of the plant is full hidden under the intense flowering. Most varieties also have the neat feature that the flowering changes it´s color during beginning, fully flowering and end of flowering from a strong pink-red to a light-pink, almost white color. Another very decorative feature of yakushimanum is the thick pelt on the fresh branches (shoots) and their partially very interesting coloring which gives the plant a very noble look. It´s actualy a sun protection for the fresh shoots which is benfitial at sunny locations.

Due to the compact and slow growth yakushimanum are perfectly suited for smaller gardens, front yards or as a flat hedge that is used a land surround for the front yard. Another big advantage of this specious is that it can stay inside the same trough or deco pot for multiple season without problems. It doesn´t need winter protection - you don´t have to get it inside during winter, whicht makes it a really nice alternative to decorate your front door, balcony or terrace.
