A beautiful plant for zone 8 Oregon, where its glowing primrose blooms illuminate the overcast spring garden..surround it with early blooming small bulbs.

This dwarf rhododendron produces light yellow flowers in mid-spring. It is small enough for a rock garden setting. It is one of the most popular dwarf yellow rhododendrons on the market. It was a cross between R. keiskei 'Yaku Fairy' X R. fletcherianum. Overall, it looks like a large R. keiskei.
