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.
Nice looking plant, and more evidence that it is Yata no Kagami, with the white shaded flower.
