I'd rather see a pot with vertical sides, and if blue I'd rather see a darker blue (or a green).

A bit deeper would be better for the health of the Azalea, I think.

I agree.


Do you know what variety this is?
It appears you have a some moss growing on the trunk, get that off. Moss will eat away at an azaleas extremely thin bark. The best way to remove it is by scraping it off with a chopstick or a small wooden skewer.

A toothbrush is another great tool for removing moss on trunks. Nylon bristles are less "destructive" to softer trunk bark.

Hi Jeffrey

I like yor new tree, I hope you will have it for many years...
I like the dark blue pot option.

Moss is easily removed with a iron solution called OE70 FER+, the product is not made for this, but i works, and does not collour the trunk. In a doubble solution painted on the roots an trunk with a small brush on a cloudy day, can you after 1 or 2 hours,very, very easy remowe the moss, as the moss has lost the grip.

Kind regards Yvonne

Dear Jeffrey

As you can see on my photo, is it not important with a big pot for an azalea....My tree has been in this pot for 5 years......I have tried to find a glazed pot for the tree, for at least the last 3 years, and I am still searching.
I dont find a pot, that emphasize the elegance off the roots like this one.
Does anyone have a suggestion?.

very nice pot combination Yvonne Graubaek.
Is no moss on the trunk, is the picture I think.
I do not know what kind it is, you can not even see what kind of flowers?

Dear Jeffrey

I did not mean to take ower your topic, I just wanted to show you, that an azalea maybe dont need a big pot after all, my azalea was in a big pot too when I bought it. And then I had this question about the pottype....

I am happy you like my tree and pot combination.

I have not removed moss with photoshop...but the way I have described. It can be done very precise, as you this way dont have to brush or scrabe, but just pluck the "painted" moss off with a tweezer.

The azalea is an "Ohsakazuki", it have red flowers.

Kind regards Yvonne

Jeffrey,

IMHO- when you got a shallower pot for your tree...be sure to have a good size mound too (like Yvonne's tree) .it would help in increasing the volume of soil. again for the health of your tree.

regards,
jun

Remember also that your local climate and watering habits will impact your pot choices. Summer temperatures in the 100F or 38C range may make it difficult to maintain health in a very small pot. Probably not common in the Netherlands though!

I think the pot in the virtual is a reasonable choice - and deep enough.

Jun, shallow pots and mounded soil are not a good combination for satsuki (any azalea) in areas with long, hot summers and/or hard winters.

I'm eager to see it in a nicer pot, and in flower!

Satsuki is the Japanese name. R. indicum is the scientific name. Otherwise, little or no difference.

The Japanese, and lately others, have created myriads of artificial/commercial 'cultivars' (named varieties {for lack of a better word at the moment}) of R. indicum (and indicum hybrids with other Rhododendron species) -- all under the name 'Satsuki."

If you want a look inside the world of Azaleas and their hundreds or thousands of cultivars, get hold of a copy of Fred C. Galle's "Azaleas."

That's ok, now I understand.

"Satsuki" is the Japanese name for this late blooming group of azaleas. It means "5th moon" or "month", going back to the old lunar calendar. In Japan the height of the satsuki season is actually the first week of June. It is about a month earlier for me here on the Gulf Coast. All of the other azaleas - wild deciduous species, the early blooming evergreen "kurume" hybrids, assorted garden varieties and wild evergreen species like "miyama kurishima" - are simply referred to as "tsutsuji". Try to find a copy of the book A Brocade Pillow, it explains how and when they were developed.

So "satsuki" and "Rhododendron indicum" refer to the same plant, one in Japanese and the other in Latin.

So Russell, can all the azaleas can be refered to as Satsuki? I've been wondering. You know I have azaleas, but in pots, not so much. I've killed 2 so far.

Libby,

No. All satsuki are azaleas, but not all azaleas are satsuki. It's like all azaleas are Rhododendrons, but not all rhododendrons are azaleas!

Many of the new azalea hybrids available in the South have satsuki "blood' that shows up as late (May/June) blooms and repeat fall blooms like 'wachet', 'conversation piece' and 'Sir Robert'. The big box "Encore" hybrids released by Flowerwood Nurseries have no satsuki in them. Our big, old standards like "Formosa" and "George Tabor" are from the "Indica" group, but are not R. indicum.

It is difficult to understand.
But if I see a book by Satsuki show there are names example Satsuki Nikko and in the other photo Rhododendron indicum.

Rhododendron indicum is very general, like Homo sapiens. Rhododendron indicum 'Nikko' is specific, the variety of satsuki is Nikko. You could be Homo sapiens 'Jeffrey'. Very Happy

That's right, but the Satsuki are also hybrids of Rh Indicun and Rh Tamurae ... and few other
