I have planted more of these lovely bushes in the back garden. A few years ago it was hard to find a Yaku Princess rhododendron -- now I find them at local nurseries.
They have a soft pink bud that opens to pure white and they are fast growing in this area. I have two on one side of my house and now will have 3 in back garden near the fence. Trying to hide the ugly fence.
I just love watching it bloom.
Have a PINK day!
