Satsuki Azalea Karenko

Post  Kev Bailey on Tue May 26, 2009 10:19 am

This is my favourite Satsuki Azalea Karenko. 14 years from a cutting and flowering is the best ever, with a good mix of flower colours. This year I changed the pot for a slightly more feminine one and I like it much better. Still looking for the perfect pot.

Nice crop of flowers.

I'd like to see a shallower pot and something with some glaze to accentuate the light pink flowers.

Hello Kev,

your azalea is absolutely beautiful, very, very feminine, like a virgin.
I think your pot is in the middle between masculine and feminine. A feminine pot might fit better.

Just as these





Or like this









To a virgin brings much joy flower

Best regards
Peter

Lovely pots Peter. I was considering this one, so I put the two photo's together as a virtual. It's not as bright as the flash made it look here.

Very nice tree indeed!
I would put it into a shallow round and quite light brown/grey pot I guess

Very nice! Can you tell me if it was planted in the ground for any length of time, or has it been in a pot its whole life? Also, are you using kanuma soil?

It has spent its entire life in pots. My soil isn't acidic enough for rhododendrons and azaleas. It is planted in a peat based mix. I have been reluctant to change over to kanuma due to price and the risks that I'm told are involved,when changing soils.

Thanks John. Wish I could afford a pot collection that had all those gems in it!

Hello Kev,

thank you for your words.
The pots which I've shown you here are intended only as an example, (thanks John for the virtual image), the pots may be so, or similar. The beauty of this thread is that you together for a suitable pot searches. When you Azalea there is a large number of matching pots.
Especially with azaleas is to select the largest, unglazed, glazed, many colours and other forms, expensive or cheap. It makes it fun to dream, and one or other pot to present.
Through this search, we get pictures in the head, and these images give us certainty in the selection of pots. Whether you have a pot behind is selected or not is not so important. This makes selecting a lot of fun.

How it would be with this glaze?. Is this not an eye-catcher?



Best regards
Peter
