New Azalea pot

I’ve been looking online for a light blue pot for this azalea but haven’t found one the right size with the features I’d like.  I was just about to put off repotting for another year when on Friday’s club meeting I found a suitable one being sold by another member.

The existing pot was too long, too deep and too formal for this tree.  I ideally wanted an oval with cloud feet but this new one is the closest I’ve found to what I want.

I left it a bit late to repot and the new pot is smaller so I’ll pick out half of the flower buds that are developing to help it recover.  Hopefully it’ll be wired later in the year.

  1. I love it! When I saw the first image I thought to myself, that needs a rounder pot. What you’ve found is definitely a step in the right direction! Looks great.

    This drought and last summers intense heat has done so much damage to my bonsai. I lost 2 of my favorites. I’m desperately needing the shade of my two year old trees so I can save the rest.

    Doing all this landscaping over the past three years keeps me from focusing on my tiny trees. I hope to return to it soon. It’s better on the muscle soreness…
