First of all, thank you very much.Reminds me of 'Yata no Kagami', especially the flower shape. But the thing I am not sure about is the purple shade of the blotch compared to the red of the petal.
I believe you are right, I purchased it from a Japanese bonsai nursery owner and he said it was a very common Satsuki.But because this is one of the most common varieties, I suspect it is correct and that there might be some variation. All Yata no Kagami go back to an original seedling a long time ago.
Yes. Very small leaves that turn reddish in the Fall, small flowers in clusters of two, very delicate petals.I think it is probably a form of R.indicum and popular because of the small leaves and the autumn colour on the leaves.
