Box yes but Azalea no. Box and Jinns are normal, along with shari dead branches on an Azalea is not a good sign, and not something that would be desirable. That is only my opinion of course, but I have not seen any Satsuki with jinns or shari in a show.
Here is another way to ask the same question. If I send in this picture as "before" and an "after" with the dead part trimmed completely off, will the Empire react with shock and horror at wasting the Jin or with admiration?
There are five of these azaleas,all fifteen years old, and all have a significant amount of dead wood like this one.
