Hi Jun

I am happy you like my little tree....
I have had this tree since 2005...I have restyled the tree some..it is diffrent now ( better)....and looking at the first picture, the base may have become slightly better, but not much....as the tree was placed in this small pot, and trees grow slow in Denmark.

Send me photos of your trees, and we will talk again Cool

Kind regards Yvonne

Hi Mick and Pongsatorn

Many thanks... Very Happy

In a half years time will I enjoy the dark red flowers, ( or just 2 or 3), as I prefer the growth, and think the little treelike satzuki, looks like a overwhelming bouquet, with theese almost 100 big flowers.

Kind regards Yvonne

Thanks for sharing that Yvonne!

One of the MANY things that surprised me about the satsuki in Kanuma was the fall color. Coming from this part of the USA we don't see much fall color, and rarely all at once. It may start in October and run through December, depending on the weather that year. Nights are cool here now, but today will be beautiful and almost 80 degrees.

But Japan was different for me, the first time I'd seen 4 real seasons. I knew what to expect from the spring flowering, but the show of color in the FOLIAGE was something new. What was really interesting was to see a satsuki that had multi-colored flowers and then see how the colors in the leaves matched those areas. Branches with red or pink flowers would have dark leaves like your Osakazuki, but branches with white flowers turned yellow. Branches with striped flowers would have striped leaves! We would have satsuki exhibitions in the autumn just to show off the foliage and even the bark because it changed color. In the West we tend to focus on satsuki as flowering bonsai, but in Japan they are appreciated as much in the fall and winter too.

Thanks Mmehrmann and Todd..very much appreciated.

Hi Russel
I always find your post and replies interesting....

I is funny to read about the leaves also are striped when the flowers are striped...
Ofcourse fallred leaves to red flowers, and yellow to white...this is quit normal for other species too, at least on the species who have dark leaves with the red flowers, and the other have normal green...but maybe not many people think about that.

You call the name Osakazuki...I call it Ohsakazuki because the japanese dealer tranlated the name to this....My guess is, you are more right..or?

The little tree is growing in kanuma...is this the reson for the fallcollours?

Last year, it was my intension to exhibit the tree at "Noelanders Trophy" in january, but I took it out, because I found the "summer-collours" on the leaves looked fake....I had pruned the tree back in midt/late summer.
This year I prepared the tree diffrent...cut it hard back in early spring, and left it to grow free (allmost).
I hope the tree will be accepted this year.

Kind regards Yvonne

that colour is excelent to see - it must be much colder there as mine stay really deep green all the time - last year i left the tree out covered in snow and still it stayed dark green - just the old inner pair of leaves discolour to yellow, then brown and drop off. i also only use kanuma and the tree has been in the uk 5 years now so i think it must be the average climate that causes the fantastic colours - or the individual varieties maybe.

lovely to see a different side to a satsuki - thanks

Thank you Yvonne!

The difference between "O-" and "Oh-" in a word like "Osakazuki" is minimal. The "Oh-" is a way of emphasizing a long "O". Most people don't bother. Sometimes you will see it as an "O" with a bar over the top. In this case the name means "big sake cup".

No, the kanuma soil isn't causing the colors in the leaves. And you are correct, Marcus. Climate is what causes the color change and intensity. And, yes, some varieties are more colorful than others, but I wonder if maybe you're fertilizing too heavily and/or too late in the season. The color is intensified by sunlight and cold. Some varieties like Matsu-nami, Kinsai and Kikoshi are especially beautiful in the winter. Kikoshi is actually grown to show off the trunk in winter more than its flowers in the spring.

That's a nice looking tree! It might be good to have a picture with a darker background/front lighting so we can see the color better, it's a little dark on my monitor.

Also, a somewhat naive question, as I don't have any azaleas...will this tree maintain its foliage through the winter, or shed part or all of it? I know different azaleas behave differently...and location/climate matters as well.

Chris, satsuki are considered "evergreen" - but all evergreens shed foliage at some point. For satsuki, they thin out in the winter after the fall color show. Some will really drop a lot leaves and hold only the ones closest to the buds. This is actually the best time to really appreciate the branch structure inside those pads of foliage. I'll look through my old pictures and see if I can find any that show this.

Weather (temperatures) factor into it too. Remember that satsuki is a BIG group of azaleas, and they aren't all the same. There are satsuki that I grow here in Mobile like Waka-ebisu that I never saw in Kanuma because they were from warmer areas of the country. And likewise there are many that I can't grow here because they want a cooler climate and more winter, like Kinsai and Matsu-nami.

Hi Russel

thanks for a lot of information Very Happy

Thanks to John, Moyogijohn, Rob, Donamitu and Ferdi Very Happy

Hi Marcus an Coh

The green fresh leaves will stay on the tree, untill new growth will take ower.
The tree has dark glossy leaves, I call theese kind of collours " atropurpureum", they always give red fallcollours. The tree has been in full sun all year. The pot in deep shade.

My tree is normaly like the way you descibe you tree Marcus, green all ower, all year.
This year, I wanted to create, what could be a beliveable winterdisplay, and not a tree with late old summerleaves, or even worse, new.

I know, it may not be the right way to exhibit satzuki Smile

Kind regards Yvonne
