A late bloomer

Post  JimLewis on Tue Jun 12, 2012 5:43 pm

One of my littlest Satsuki is STILL blooming.



The small stand holds a marine seashell, worm snail, fam. Vermetidae.

365 days a year (unless I bring one in for a few days when they bloom).

One more of your little beauties, Jim!
They are all soooo lovely, indeed.

May I ask a question though. Is this pot correctly corresponding to the size of the tree? In either answer (negative/positive) will you please mention the reason why, so that I can learn more?
Thank you!

Always.

Is this pot correctly corresponding to the size of the tree?

To some extent, the answer to that is in the eye of the beholder. BUT . . . azalea tend to prefer more root room than other plants, especially in hot climates like mine (assuming it ever DOES get hot around here this summer).

Also . . . the standard pot-to-plant size ratio doesn't apply as directly to smaller mini-size bonsai as it does to larger ones.

AND . . . I like this pot. It is one of the very few dark, glossy blue pots that I like at all.

And all that said, it probably is a bit large. :-)

I think if the canopy/twigging is developed wider and fuller it would visually balance the pot better but even as is, I think it works.

Thanks, Jim. I agree.

This is, incidentally, the BACK of the tree, but it was where the flowers were "pointing."

Here's the front a month or so ago. Note the flower is larger back then.
