Yakushimanum lily-of-the-valley shrubs are superb, dwarf, evergreen plants for small spaces or rockeries. Rondo is a lovely variety with short, elongated, stiff, and partly glossy leaves of deep green colour. Flowers appear in small clusters/racemes and are white, opening from orangey-red buds. They come out later in the spring season: April/May.

It grows very slowly and extremely dense forming an almost regularly rounded shrub. Unlike other pieris varieties it does not mind heavy snow cap due to its solid skeleton of strong branches that will not break under its weight. It is a neat and healthy, pest and disease resistant plant. No pruning required. Superb for terracotta or wooden containers on patios, balconies, at doorways etc.

Ericaceous plants require soil that is light, acidic, and constantly moist (not wet). If your garden soil is too heavy do not dig a deep hole but make a shallow and wide bed topped up with a good mixture of peat, fine bark chips, and leaf (forest) litter. Keep the soil moist by mulching. Slow-release fertilizers are advised. Hardy to -29°C (USDA zone 5).
