Yaku Princess Rhododendron
Rhododendron x 'Yaku Princess' (H-2)
|Description||A dense, compactly branched low grower with showy pinkish white blooms that create a striking contrast against the deep olive green foliage. A low maintenance vigorous grower. A wonderful foundation plant or planted alone as a colorful accent. Evergreen.|
|Watering||Keep soil moist, but not soggy.|
|Mature Size||Moderate grower to 5 ft. tall and wide.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Hedge|
|Design Ideas||Ideal planted in the middle of borders with other acid-loving shrubs, along house foundations or to soften the base of a fence. Great background for virtually all perennials and works well to cover ground beneath and behind a smaller accent tree. Also makes a good hedge when left to grow into its natural shape.|

|Care||Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Provide well drained soil, rich in organic matter. Feed with an acid fertilizer after bloom. Keep roots cool with a thick layer of mulch.|
|Lore||Rhododendron was named and classified by Linnaeus who named it from the Greek for rose tree.|
