And another collected Azalea

Must be something in the air?!?!
I collected this one this week from our holiday shack in Torquay. It's been in the ground for at least 50 years and flowers red. New decking meant it was time to move it or lose it.

What is it with this sudden run on azaleas :lost:
Old trunks are definitely worth getting. Looks like most of the trunks are pretty straight. Any ideas on a design yet?

I'm a ponderer Shibui.
I'll probably look at it for a few years and have about 1000 different ideas.
All branches are 'alive' so so I'll see what she throws at me.
