AHHH …do you have a Rhodo Yaku princess? The reason there are so many Yaku Princesses is not because it is good, it is not….it’s because it was part of a labelling mistake years and years ago. When tissue culture rhodos (grown in test tubes) hit the market in mass way back, a good yak rhodo, called Ken Janeck was sold by tissue culture labs. Sadly, thousands of those early KenJanecks turned out to be Yaku Princess.
Often plants are sold or promoted not because they are good, but only because they grow fast in a commercial nursery setting, so the profit is easy for the seller. Sadly, I still see Rhodo Yaku Princess sold everywhere, while there are better yaks, including Ken Janeck & Mist Maiden
SOME OF THE BEST plants take longer to grow …that’s why they are rarely seen. YET THOSE ARE the plants we offer at Eastern Plant…it takes us longer to grow them but you get a much better plant with real attributes and beauty.
Eastern prides itself on knowing our plants, knowing our rhodos, the good ones and the bad ones. The industry is full of good plant people and like any industry, people that shouldnt be in it. We are in this for the long haul.
Visit our nursery to see the finest rhodos in New England. We are located in scenic Georgetown, Maine.
