Be sure to use a well drained soil medium when planting any Camellia as they prefer 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 'Showa-No-Sakae'
This exquisite camellia is sure to dazzle you and anyone who looks at it. Named ‘Glory of Showa Era,’ its flamboyant display of pink peony - anemone-like double blooms that cast upon a wall of dark green foliage and beaming display will hold your attention throughout fall.
