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.
