I purchased this azalea and pom pom today from the daughter of basically the last local bonsai master. Sadly, Else passed away last September. The daughter has sold the shop and is selling the trees that sat there neglected for quite some time.
I feel like I’ve not paid for at tree. Instead I paid homage to Else’s memory and it is now my task to continue the care for these trees.
Haha, dramatic. Any advice on styling of the azalea. It looks a bit like a shrub to me, but the ramification is top knotch. I’m going to have to build a stand for her. What would you have paid for her?
