That is some trunk.  Are kurume treated the same as satsuki?  Same timing?  Will this one be shown in the next few years?  (So many questions....  I know.)

yes, it is treated the same as satsuki.  we plan to show it in 2-3 years.  branch pads need to be worked on. 
we repotted it this year and it is growing nicely.  my student left a few flowers on to see what it looks like.
 busy bonsai season starts already.  no rest for a while.

Very nice,
I assume with a trunk like that that it is an import?

Guess I missed the update on this one,

I forgot you posted this tree, and now that I look at it again I fall in love with it. This tree is awesome, what a beautiful trunk, and it will be a pure eye-dropper when it is in flower. I think if I envy any tree that I have seen posted on the forum, I envy this one the most.

Can't wait to see what is in store for this. Are you going to let it flower come spring???


Thanks for sharing,
Andrew

Boon -
Can you safely repot Kurume after flowering is finished?

I see that this tree has bloomed twice in May.  Aren't Kurumes typically early bloomers and if so why does this one bloom in May? Beautiful tree!

my Kurume flowers later than the others satsuki's here in New England.  I don't know what that tells us....

My gyoten bloomed in April. Definitely a sign of the apocalypse.

On a side note, perhaps I should stop watching the History channel.
