Looks like it might be a Kaho Satsuki. I picked one up at Brussels about 8 years ago when you could still buy imported trees for a reasonable price. Will post a picture when it starts flowering. I have about 10 flowers open right now but it usually covers the entire tree with blooms of multi-colors. I would think that all my azaleas should me flowering by this weekend. Hopefully I can get some pics and post them.

Dav4 is right

Dav4 is right in that the tree is an import. After going through quaranteen and fairly severe shock, the tree cam e out nice and bushy. My job was to bring the tree back wiith wiring and triming.:)

I'm sure. When satsukis are in bloom, it is best to keep them in the shade and protected from rain. Also, don't mist the foliage either. The flowers will much longer:)
