A great name for a great plant! A cultivar that has been in the trade for some time, but not named until now. This low, compact rhododendron hybrid is a cross between the Japanese species R. degronianum ssp. yakushimanum and an old yellow flowering rhododendron R. 'Jalisco Eclipse'. The flowers are a medium pink color, but the plant is named for the lovely foliage and attractive mounding habit. New and a must for the 'yak' hybrid collectors.
