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?

Yes, it is.  it came from an importer in Sacramento.

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!
