Hi Hawaiian77, it is approx 25 years old and is called 'ozakazuki'
It never lets me down and flowers like this year on year it the first of my trees to flower.
Can I suggest that you visit www.satsuki-azalea-society.org.uk web site - look after the site as webmaster and you might find it interesting.
Thanks for your post.

A "Big" Mahalo (Thank You) for the link. ThumbsUp Just went to the website and they have a lot of great information. thumbs up Do you have and more Azaleas? All mine are pre-bonsai. I have besides the "Niigara Kirin" a "Chinzan", "Kokinshi", "Hoshi no Sato" and a "Nuccio's Carinval". Thats the only one that is not Japanese.

Nice little tree . . . but you do need to weed your pot before all that gets away from you.

Hi Jim - thanx for your comments.
The Weeds that you see are minature bamboo - which I think enhances the appearance of the tree. It is a personal viewpoint though. I do understand where you are coming from though.

Bamboo, like grass, has a very dense root system. I'd think it would soon fill your pot and compete with he tree.

Hi Jim - thanx for your comments.
I am sure that you are correct in pointing out the competition between tree and bamboo. However as you can see the pot is very large for the size of the tree and I suppose that traditionally I should reduce this size by half, I feel sure that then I would need to 'Get the Rake and root cutters out.' If the bamboo gets a bit rampant I just cut it back and I have done this for several years.
I guess that I like my bamboo and it always gets talked about when my bonsai buddies see it, however if I was a traditionalist I would be 'drummed out' of the clubs.
Best wishes and thanx again for your observations.
Barrie
