    Beautiful tree...we don't see Satsukis of this quality posted often, so thanks. Has it already flowered...?

    Nice tree! Do Satsukis grow well in Hawaii? Do they need any kind of a cooler dormant period or can they handle the warmer weather year round?

    Beautiful tree. I like to see it in flower.
    I like satsuki, but it can't survive in my area (hot dry weather).

    Dave, this one hasn't flowered yet, but the buds are swelling.


    Tom, my other Satsuki has been fine all year round. I hope this one can adjust to the hawaiian climate


    Thanks bonhe, i'll post a pic when in flower (hopefully)

    Wow! That's a very nice Satsuki! Beautiful trunk and foliage pads. You are a lucky man there Duane! Good luck with it!

    I have never heard of Sean Kelly or River Bay Bonsai dealer before either. Seems like they have great imported material for sale!

    Thanks Marc, I am starting to see color poking thru some buds. Getting excited here!


    Thanks Si, Sean Kelly has some killer trees for sure. I was stoked to be able to get this one.
    This is what caught my eye & the rest is history
