Camellia Sasanqua 'Winter Fancy'


Winter's Fancy bears numerous deep pink, semi-double flowers that surround a cluster of yellow stamen with semi-glossy, leathery textured foliage. Blooming in autumn, this evergreen reaches a mature height of 6-10 feet and a width of 4-6 feet. This variety can be used as a feature plant, foundation, hedges, mixed border, topiary, espalier, or as cut flowers to add color in the home.


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.

Joseph's Take

Joseph's Take

I do very much like Winter's Fancy and Winter Interlude. This Camellia grows a bit faster than its near relative Winter Interlude. I like both very much. Once I planted a Camellia seed from my grandmothers house, I was amazed that it actually grew and eventually became part of my parents landscape.

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.
