From Backyard Gardener:  Rhododendron hybrida • (Jindai Satsuki Azalea)

Compact, low-growing, evergreen shrub that is twiggy and dense with a spreading to rounded form. Leaves are lance-shaped to elliptic and notably smaller, 1/2 to 2 inches long, than other azalea hybrids making it the wonderful bonzai plant that it was originally bred to be. Showy, funnel-shaped, white to light pink flowers with purplish-pink markings, 4 to 4 1/2 inches wide. Flowers are borne from May to June. Prune immediately after flowering so you won’t cut off any of next year’s flower buds. […] This Japanese azalea is a hybridization between Rhododendron indicum and Rhododendron simsii. […]
