Rhododendron yakushimanum ‘Koichiro Wada’


Categories: ,


Ericaceae. Pink in bud opening to delightful white bell shaped flowers in May that have the appearance of apple blossom. Koichiro Wada has silvery new growth which turns dark glossy green, with dense brown indumentum underneath the leaf.  There is a distinctive white covering (tomentum) on the top of the leaves.  This is generally accepted to be the best form of yakushimanum, selected from seedlings raised at Exbury Gardens.  This is the FCC form (awarded in 1947) and was imported by L. de Rothschild in 1934 from K. Wada in Japan.
