Camellia Sasanqua 'Long Island Pink'

 

Long Island Pink Camellias lovely, single pink bloom makes their appearance in the fall. Its showy bloom has a distinctive cup shape as well as its signature dark green semi-gloss foliage that keep through the winter. It grows very fast and full for a fall bloomer and can handle full sun during the summer months.

Long Island Pink Camellia is one of my favorite fall bloomers not because of it flower, but because of it's vigerous growth rate. It grows much faster than the pupular Yultide and its leaf structure is just as dense. Remember, all fall blooming camellias can grow in much more sunnier conditions than their spring blooming friends.

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