There are so many beautiful colors of bloom in the Rhododendron world. Percy Wiseman Yak Rhododendron is one of the most beautiful shades of peach available. The delicate peach turns to a rosy pink and fades to pure white before falling off the shrub. The lovely dark green evergreen foliage is coated in fuzzy, brown hairs that help this variety tolerate cold and wind better in the winter.
Pests and diseases are a non-issue for Percy Wiseman. Deer and rabbits also do not like to eat any part of this shrub. The medium size of this Rhododendron makes it perfect for including in an informal hedge or planting as a spectacular specimen in the garden or container. Rhododendrons fit well into many different garden schemes. Asian inspired, modern and Cottage Garden, just to name a few. Bees and other beneficial pollinators will be drawn to the profuse bunches of blooms.
Percy Wiseman Yak Rhododendron Care
Percy Wiseman likes to be sited in any spot, from full sun to part shade. Gardeners growing Rhododendrons in the warmer hardiness zones should choose a spot that has full shade late in the afternoon, or part shade for half of the day. Rhododendrons prefer an acidic soil and thrive with well-drained, but consistently moist soil. Mulching with organic compost or leaves in the fall will help to improve the moisture retention of the soil. An average to heavy soil texture is acceptable and will hold the shallow root balls in place better than sandier soils.
Pruning is not an issue with Percy Wiseman. Deadheading after the blooms finish is all that is needed to maintain the compact shape of this shrub. Fertilize in the early spring with a well balanced, slow release food made for acid loving plants. Extra irrigation may be required during periods of heat and drought.
Percy Wiseman Yak Rhododendron Spacing
The mature height of this Rhododendron is 3-4 feet and the width is 4-5 feet. Spacing at 4 foot on center when planting in a group is recommended. Planting in a pot that is at least 24 inches in diameter will ensure that there is plenty of room for the roots to establish.
