Camellia sasanqua 'Green 08-052' PP30386

 

This true crimson flower is here for the long haul; these blooms show their colors for a good eight to nine weeks. This fall-into-winter blooming shrub grows to be approximately ten feet tall, and is considered one of the faster growing camellias. The new growth has a reddish tinge as it comes in. A great choice for any amount of sun, add some more red hues to your well-drained garden space here!

Remember that all fall blooming or Camellia sasanqua can grow in either sun or shade while the spring blooming Camellia japonica needs at least afternoon shade.

Be sure to use a well drained soil medium when planting any Camellia, Rhododendron, Mountain Laurel, and Azalea as they all 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 these varities.
