Yaku Angel

Yaku Angel

One of the most lovely of all species that is from one island in Japan. Rhododendron degronianum ssp. yakushimanum 'Yaku Angel' is a very compact growing shrub with shiny dark green foliage. The foliage has a 'suade' coating under the leaves, and in spring has a dusty white coating called tomentum that they believe is a natural insect proofing.  This white coating wears off by mid summer leaving the leaves very dark-green and lusterous. The plant flowers heavily in mid April with pure white flower and sometimes a bit of red spotting inside. It is hardy to -15 degrees F, and will only be 2 ft tall and wide in 10 years. Drought tolerant once established.

Rare Variety – This variety is difficult to find anywhere due to these reasons

·       Hard to propagate – many cultivars do not root easily from cuttings, but at a reduced rate thus making the plant rare.

·       Hard to find – these cultivars are hard to find in the first place, probably because they are hard to root from cuttings
