First real azalea satsuki bonsai

Post  SidneyDR on Sun Mar 26, 2017 11:45 pm

Hi everyone !  Smile
After looking a long time for a nice Satsuki bonsai, I had a moment of luck.
I found this tree from a well known seller in Europe for a good price.
It is a rhododendron Indicum, I don't know which flowers it will have yet.
I don't know how old it is. It is imported from Japan.
It is 17 cm high and the trunk is 12 cm wide.
I will also try and find a nicer pot after I know what flowers it will have so I can find one that suits those.
Here are some pics  Smile

Nice looking tree that should be spectacular in flower!

Trunk looks good as well although the foliage obscures it a bit. Real potential though, please update when it flowers.

Thanks Smile
I will update when it flowers. No sign of flowerbuds yet though, only leaf growth. Maybe next month Smile I'm very curious what the flowers will be like.
