October Magic® White Shi-Shi Gashira Sasanqua Camellia

An excellent pure white, perfect or rose form flowered selection of the famed Shi-Shi Gashira Sasanqua Camellia, the October Magic® White Shi-Shi Gashira has the same growth habit and reliability as its sport parent. It produces pure white double flowers beginning in October with a show that can last well into December with flowers that absolutely shine against the deep green medium textured foliage.October Magic® White Shi-Shi Gashira Sasanqua Camellia makes an excellent and adaptable compact evergreen shrub with a tidy 4' x 4' habit that makes an easy and low maintenance addition to the garden and landscape. Full sun to light shade in any well-draining acid soil.

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.
