This large Rhododendron-like evergreen shrub with large lustrous leaves is not related to Rhododendron and the flowers are not conspicuous. It is however a choice evergreen shrub for the moist semi-shady garden. Daphiniphyllum humile is like a smaller version of Daphniphyullum macropodum. It was probably first offered in the U.S. by Woodlanders having been obtained from Hillier Nursery in England. It is native to Japan.
