Mangetsu Azalea Fusion update

fusionazalea1 Last fall I removed the flower buds to get more rapid growth and I got just that. The foliage is very dense. Time for a hard prune.

fusionazalea2 Many new buds had popped. I will leave these.

fusionazalea3 I removed the heaver growth leaving stubs as possible future branches. I saved the cuttings for rooting out. These will be added next year at the base of the trunk to fill in a few gaps.fusionazalea4 The upper section of the trunk is fusing nicely.

I will continue to feed heavily to stimulate robust back budding and aggressive growth.

Have fun!
