Azalea 2007 ( owner friend Mirek)

Post  Pavel Slovák on Fri Mar 04, 2011 9:34 pm

Hi all

Today I worked on Azalea. The owner is a friend Mirek.
The tree was bought in autumn 2007. Unfortunately, the tree grew very poorly. After transplanting, everything improved. Tree trunk is very good. Unfortunately, the crown was bad and a lot of bumps in the top of the crown. In March 2010 we startedto build the tree again ,almost from the beginning . Especially, we modified the strain at the top. Eventually I worked for a new style of crown.

March 2010



May 2010


Today I worked restyling
March 2011 Azalea before restyling



March 2011 - after restyling

Great tree Paval! In the last picture are you looking through your hand? I really like how it turned out. I formed my hand in the shape of a C and that is what it looks like. Laughing

I love seeing how in one styling session, all the existing foliage can be arranged to become such a pleasing form. Only a true, gifted artist can pull this off successfully. Once again, great work. Your posts are so inspiring for a beginner.

Hi Neil , Mike, Nguyen, Peter, CJ and Xuan.

Thank you very much for yours very nice replies and compliments. I appreciate it. Very Happy


I left a lot of buds - flowers. Cut the branches at the end of flowering.
Pot sells Isabelia BC-pot made of ceramics artist Mr.Pravoslav Dorda. Unfortunately, very little work. It is an old pot.
Unfortunately I do not know what version of Azalea. I'll ask a friend.

Ooh wait, you probably meant 'I made the pictures last Thursday' rather than 'I will make pictures next Thursday (so you can see the flowers)'.

Pavel, once again you did a great job! It is really taking shape and evolving into an excellent tree!

Do you have an idea why initially the tree was growing very poorly? And what exactly reversed it? Anything specifice after which it started to grow well?

Thanks,

Andrei

Hi !

Thats a very nice tree but I think if it have half of its height it would be much more impressive.

My first thought was 'eikan', but seeing the flowers I think 'asahi-no-hikari'. Nice one, as usual, Pavel!

Don't you have 'asahi-no-hikari' Xuan?

Thank you all for yours very nice coments and nice compliments. Very Happy
I appreciate that.

Thanks Russell for help in determining the variety. ThumbsUp

Hi Andrei - Greatly improved tree growth after transplanting. It was originally 100% Kanuma. It was wrong for us. We used only 50% Kanuma. Added turf, akadama, mountain gravel. Then place in full sun.

I hear that in drier climates, 100% kanuma retains too little moisture. I guess one would really have to water a lot during peak summer if it is in full sun in pure kanuma.

Looks pretty skillfully styled.
