Satsuki azaleas are increasingly popular among western bonsai enthusiasts. If you fulfill their special needs (never let them dry out, water with rain water, use special soil and fertilizer) they are very easy to care for and delight their owners with beautiful flowers every year. There are countless different varieties with flowers in numerous different colours and shapes and they also differ in leave shape, leave size and vigour. A very good feature of the satsuki azalea is that it can be heavily pruned and will happily grow new shoots out of the bark of the trunk and branches. It grows basal dominant which means the lower branches grow stronger than the apex, in contrast to most tree species
Plant Satsuki azaleas in the best spot for meeting the plant’s light requirements to ensure vigorous blooming and ideal plant health. According to the Azalea Society of America, evergreen azaleas such as Satsuki thrive in areas with partial sun and shade. Avoid planting a Satsuki azalea in full sun, where it is vulnerable to leaf burn. In full shade, it will grow longer stems and produce fewer flowers.
