Camellia sasanqua 'Shishi Gashira'

 

Shishi Gashira Camellia produces large amounts of hot pink single blooms with golden stamens in late fall and into winter. A low growing, but wide shrub, the Shishi Gashira camellia is an excellent choice for a low hedge in a small yard. Weeping growth habit can give a romantic feel to a garden. A good companion plant is Snow Flurry Camellia.

 

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.

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.
