I would like to post the following azalea photo to the database and would appreciate knowing the correct database entry to do so:



It is part of Longwood Gardens' Bonsai collection and is labeled only by its genus, Rhododendron without a species designation or a cultivar designation.

Thank you.]

Carol, how old is it, the "trunk" is pretty wide!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

I just asked Longwood by email how old it is and will let you know when I receive a response (a day or two).

According to a senior gardener at Longwood Gardens, this Bonsai azalea is at least 80 years old, and possibly older.
