Selection of winter flowering Camellia Sasanqua
Winter flowering Camellia Sasanqua is perhaps less well known than its spring flowering relative Camellia Japonica. Nevertheless, Camellia Sasanquas are a garden treasure, bringing uplifting colour and fragrance to the garden from autumn right through to early spring – exactly when it’s most needed. Sasanquas have been cultivated in their native Japan since the 1300’s!
Graceful and airy winter flowering Camellias are slow growing, usually reaching a maximum height in the UK of circa 4 metres. Although smaller than Camellia Japonica flowers, Camellia Sasanqua flowers tend to be abundant and are known for their fragrance. Evergreen Sasanquas have beautiful dark green foliage and a more spreading growth than the dense-growing better known camellia varieties. Camellia Sasanquas lend themselves to light trimming, best done in mid-summer. Ideal as stand-alone ornamental shrubs, you could also consider Camellia Sasanqua if you are looking for an unusual winter flowering evergreen hedge.
At Paramount Plants, our winter flowering Camellia Sasanquas – still flowering now – are available in pink (Cleopatra), white and crimson red (kanjiro).
In this price range, all plants are a bushy shaped and circa 90 CM tall!
