Azalea bonsai are as iconic as a Japanese maple or Japanese black pine bonsai. If you are looking for one of the most sought-after and dynamic bonsai tree species – you’ve found it! They grow in a relatively isolated parts of Southern Japan. Enjoyed for centuries as garden plants and generations as bonsai. There are over three hundred varieties of hybrids and floral presentations that exist today. 

Satsuki azalea flowers for example can offer any color and combination of stripes and spots. Because of its flowering beauty and smooth, muscular-looking trunk, the Satsuki azalea is highly prized in the bonsai community.

Caring for azalea bonsai

Azaleas love water. Water until water comes out of the drainage holes in the bottom. In between these waterings, only moisten the surface of the plant to hydrate the fine roots without saturating middle-to-bottom portion of the container to avoid water-related issues.

Good to know: Flower rot can be catastrophic to the floral display of your azalea. Keeping the foliage and flowers dry when watering is a great way to prevent this from occurring.

Sun exposure

In Spring and Autumn, azalea bonsai benefit from full sun to create strong flower buds with tight internodes and to build up the kind of resources that continue to perpetuate the species’ iconic floral display.

As a bonsai, azalea has some of the greatest capacity to grow in partial, or even full shade in some varieties and cultivars. The larger the leaf and overall size of the Satsuki azalea bonsai, the more heat they can tolerate.

Fertilizing

Satsuki azalea bonsai enjoy organic feed.

Moderate application of once a month is all that's necessary to keep azalea bonsai growing strong.
