The Satsuki Azaleas-Floral Treasures of Japan by Alexander Kennedy
Bred and selected for over 300 years as container-grown exhibition trees, the Satsuki azaleas hold a very special place in Japanese culture. The annual Satsuki Festivals held in late May or June of each year is high point in Japanese horticulture.
Satsuki azaleas have long been admired and praised by Western horticulturists and writes. They have even found a place as garden plants, and in breeding programs for garden azaleas. Yet their use as show treeﾒs, is the very thing that makes Satsuki so special in Japan often seems to have been missed in their introduction to the West.
This book gives an insight into the world of Satsuki; their history and use in the world today; and guidance on their cultivation.
