Camellia sasanqua 'Jean May'

 

This world renowned evergreen shrub presents you with delicate copious amounts of semi-double or double, white rosy-pink blooms that grow a shade darker towards the center where they converge to the illustrious golden stamens. The Camellia Sasanqua ‘Jean May’ has a slightly fragrant appeal with 3-4 in wide flowers that embody the entirety of the shrub and will embellish your garden during fall months leading into winter. Reaching heights around 6 ft and stretching across around 10 ft, this fast growing evergreen shrub spreads gracefully with an open habit which blends well with other shrubs without being overly commanding of the surrounding space.

 

Be sure to use a well drained soil medium when planting Camellia as they prefer less watering than you might think. In clay soil we prefer planting with pine bark soil conditioner for Camellia, Rhododendron, Mountain Laurel, Azalea.
