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.
Camellia sasanqua 'Setsugekka'
The Setsugekka Camellia produces semi-double, ruffled white flowers with gold stamens against glossy dark green foliage. This slow to moderate growth Camellia has a weeping effect that works well for espalier projects. Flowers are abundant starting in fall and last through Thanksgiving. Being a fall bloomer, Setsugekka has smaller yet many more flowers than many spring bloomers. That and the fact that fall bloomers can handle more sun than spring bloomers, makes them a good choice for success.
Teas/tisanes can be made from all camellias, for varied flavored results depending on the variety and processing methods used--some cultivars have caffeine, while some do not. There are resources available online for the hobbyist and production-minded tea makers alike. Research, experiment, process and use at your own risk.
