Rhododendron 'Hydon Dawn'
yakushimanum X 'Springbok'
(so yakushimanum, griersonianum, ponticum
AM 1977, AM 1986, FCC 1987, AGM (1993) 2012
Flowers: trusses of about 15 frilled pink flowers which fade to white.
yakushimanum type leaves with cream indumentum.
10 year height/spread: 0.8m/1m
Recognise by: the similarities to yakushimanum,
the indumentum, and the compact growth habit.
Easy to root and grow, and free flowering from an early age, Looks like
yakushimanum with more open and initially pink flowers, otherwise
similar to that species.
