Azalea Cut Back Again

One month ago I bought this azalea and thinned it out heavily. The backbudding response was very good, so the other day I took out the concave pruners and cut back hard to the new buds. Some branches still need to go further back, but overall I have been happy with its progress such a short time. What an amazing species!

    Hi Aaron, huge improvement, you are a brave guy… btw. I like the tree better leaning to the right – your original front. I also like slanting trees, get this one though – ALL of my slanting trees lean to the right… so may be my opinion is biased. I can see this Azalea being a great reee soon.

    • Ha! Maybe not so brave… I just do what “McCallion Sensei” tells me to do, so if it fails I can blame him! đŸ™‚

      Why do you like it better from the original front? Strictly because of the lean, or because of other reasons?
