Yakushimanum Rhododendrons

have the bold flowers of a hardy hybrid combined with a compact habit more suited to growing in patio pots or where space is limited.

Yakushimanum is a tough floriferous evergreen species introduced into this country from Yakushima, an island off Japan in the 1930’s. In the late 1950’s Percy Wiseman, nursery manager at Waterers, saw that gardens where getting smaller, so crossed yakushimanum with larger growing hybrids to produce a range of extremely hardy compact Rhododendrons with masses of bold colourful flowers, mainly during May. They will grow successfully in sun or partial shade.
