A great dwarf evergreen shrub with a typically dense and compact habit which matures to 4'H x 4'W. Masses of 2" pink blooms are borne in November. Adaptable to sun or shade, but needs a moist acidic soil. An excellent dwarf evergreen shrub. 2010 Louisiana Super Plant selection!


The small leaved Sasanqua Camellias make excellent landscape or container plants and are much more tolerant of sun and soil conditions than the larger flowered Japonica Camellias. These durable evergreen shrubs cover themselves in 2-3" flowers in fall and early winter and before the flowers fade the petals fall individually to form a colorful blanket beneath the dark glossy green foliage. These dwarf Camellias are amenable to pruning and shearing which should be done in spring. Sasanquas do appreciate a humus-rich soil, an organic mulch, and average moisture until well-established.

 

For more on growing Sasanqua Camellias read Dr. Allen Owings', an LSU AgCenter Horticulturist, article titled "Sasanquas, Dwarf Camellias Add Color to Early-Winter Landscapes". Or check out our Guide to Planting & Growing Camellias.
