Rhododendron yakushimanum 'Percy Wiseman'

 

Percy Wiseman Rhododendron has lovely spring flowers emerge in shades of peach, pink and cream before fading to creamy white. The thick green leaves have velvety tan undersides. A vigorous and versatile evergreen shrub that is ideal to use for a mass planting, low hedge or foundation plant, but works equally well as a landscape accent or specimen.

Percy Wiseman Rhododendron is one of our favorites for its variegated flowers and dwarf growth habit, its very cute and looks nice with Capistrano. As in with all Rhododendron, make sure to plant in a shady area and use soil conditioner when planting as they prefer well drained soil.

Be sure to use a well drained soil medium when planting any Rhododendron as they prefer fall planting with less watering than you might think. In NC our soil is clay so we prefer to use pine bark soil conditioner when planting Camellia, Rhododendron, Mountain Laurel, and Azalea.
