Satsuki azalea korin

Satsuki Azalea cuttings  (Named Varieties)     Hoshi- No-Kagayaki, Polo, Kakuo and Tatsunami are now available . 

  The Satsuki azalea bonsai pictured above was developed from a cutting which I took in 1996. This variety of satsuki has a bushy growth habit which naturally forms a compact bonsai image. The above tree is now ready for thinning. This will highlight the negative areas, improving the overall image.  Ryuga Tools now available.
