Please help ID azalea

Post  LSBonsai on Wed May 25, 2011 3:52 am

This is a friend's tree... he is (understandably) a bit overwhelmed with the task of correctly IDing the variety.

I know there are some people here with a vast knowledge of satsuki cultivars. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The pics are not the greatest, but better ones can be provided if necessary.

Some notes: the occasional flower has a light pink stripe (pictured). Even more occasionally, the tree throws an entirely pink flower.

Also... the leaves are quite "furry". Not sure if this is diagnostic of anything.

Thank you in advance.

'Kaho' or 'Eikan', hard for me to tell them apart in pictures. I bet 'Kaho'.

I agree with Russell....I have a Kaho-no-homare which looks very much like the one pictured.

Regards,
Tom

I think it is more likely to be 'Kaho' than 'Eikan'.

Looks nice. And more colour will eventually come.
