Yaku Sunrise Rhododendron
A rewarding evergreen shrub.
In this age of growing cities and decreased personal space, many gardeners are seeking plants that will fit into their more compact landscapes. 'Yaku Sunrise' will fit in nicely in most spaces. It reaches a height of only 3 to 4 feet, and is a little wider than it is tall.
Provide this shrub with organically rich, well-drained, acidic soil in partial sun/shade. Afternoon protection from the sun is best. Zones 6-9.
