Great trees! I like the twisted trunk the best. It has a lot of charisma. The huge trunked tree is awesome. Will you send pictures when it blooms?
Best, Todd

[quote="Pavel Slovák"]Hi all friends

Hi Pavel
Since the taper of this beautiful tree seems to be not that good,
would it be an idea to graft a branch on the lower part of the trunk till it fatten'd up?
The impressive big tree gifs after your work some more inside in his structure,
i feel it could be even a bit more.

I have read once that the japanese style their flowering trees in a certain way in order to show better their flowers. Reverse tapering or other faulty features are less important to them..........

In Japan many people that do satsuki are flower people, not bonsai people.

Satsuki bonsai come from a flower enthusiast tradition. Because azalea are so brittle, styling azalea as bonsai wasn't even possible. The satsuki tradition has more to do with camellia and crysanthemum than with pines or maples.

there are tree's where inverse taper really bugs me and distracts me from the over all tree and there are some (rare exceptions) where it really does'nt this is one of those exceptions. Its that downward facing bump that creates the inverse taper impression but that twisting and mangling is to cool to mess with by carving that bump off. I wonder if rather than grafting branches to the lower trunk one could wrap it in moist sphagnum, bury it below soil line for a few seasons then hopefully roots would have grown out of that section of trunk and helped to thicken it? Can that even be done with an Azalea? I've done it myself on Juniper and Boxwood. It wouldn't take too much to help ease that inversion.

I think it is very possible.

R.nakaharae hybrids even layer themselves and creep along this way. If there is thick mulch, it's low branches will naturally root.

If you actually want to do it with a big old azalea bonsai, I don't know.
