Satsuki azalea

Post  Jeremy on Sun May 16, 2010 4:55 pm

Hi,
Dragon members, Stuart and his wife brought one of their Satsuki azalea to our workshop today.
Although not grown as a bonsai it was a joy to see so many variations, (sports?) of flower on one tree.







Stuart can't remember the variety, he bought it as a small plant many years ago.
Anyone got a suggestion as to it variety?

Jeremy,

Most likely 'Kogetsu'. And it's a good one too. This is a good example of why it is important to buy satsuki while they are blooming - you can see that this is a 'Kogetsu' (or whatever variety) that has all of the variation that it is supposed to have. It would still be 'Kogetsu' even if it had solid red or red and white flowers, but not nearly as desirable ($$) of an example.

Thanks for sharing.

Bless you, Jerry.

Oh sorry - thought you sneezed! Laughing


But seriously, thanks to Russell for IDing this. There are so many azaleas it gets confusing, or to be more accurate I get confused.

Beech clump

Fiona.............Rolling Eyes .......... Razz

Anyway.......
Stuart also brought in a beech clump he had grown from 3 sprouting seedlings. He wanted our thoughts as to the next step.
The suggestions flowed freely.



After 60mins+ we used materials / plastic sheeting to show our suggestions. (We could'nt find any tesco's bags)affraid



Stuart took it all in and then set to work.



By the end of the day, Stuart had guy wired many of the branches into shape.
