Semi Cascade Azalea styling help

Post  cmd5235 on Fri May 18, 2012 8:30 pm

I've had this tree for a while now, and I'm unsure where to go from here. It was taken from discarded, old landscape plants approximately four years ago. Currently it's a semi cascade, but I'm not sure to continue this way, wire it down to a full cascade, or lop it off and make a shohin. Any comments appreciated!

Could you also help us to help you by giving a more specific location in your profile?

Thanks. Should imagine that's got a different climate from Barnsley. Very Happy

I will rotate your pictures for you on this occasion.

Looks like it has already bloomed.
Anyway, I'd get rid of or severely shorten, that extension to the trunk and design around the semi cascade shape. It will be difficult to bend the tail down any further because azaleas are so very brittle. I'd probably shorten the tail also. Here's something similar to what you might want to shoot for:

What are you afraid of? I promise we won't all show up for dinner without an invitation. Shocked


Anyway, it could use more space. Find a pot that's wider (more surface area for the shallow root system), fertilize it and get it strong and healthy before you do much of anything.
