Satsuki Azalea

Rhododendron indicum
Satsuki hybrids
(sats-key)

Satsuki means "fifth moon" of the lunar calendar,
and bloom in May and early June.
 To some these varieties extend  the Azalea flower season
to others they unacceptably bloom "out of season".......

The Azalea species need the soil to be moist and the air to be humid.
Azaleas are flamboyant flowering shrubs, producing masses of bright flowers

"Goko" Satsuki Azalea is 
laden with pink blooms.



The Azalea species need the soil to be moist and the air to be humid.
Please remember that although these plants
can be brought indoors for show at flowering time,
They need to experience seasonal changes
 Grow Satsuki out of doors year round
