This variety of Camellia is so fantastic and versatile you're definitely going to want some for your garden. So let's start with how to pronounce the name - "Sa - sang - kwa". Now you can be sure you'll be shown the right plant when you head into the nursery - and the boys will be impressed!
Originating in Japan these Camellias are known as the "Autumn Camellia" as they start flowering from as early as March. The flowers are usually quite small, often single and produced in such profusion it is sometimes difficult to see the foliage. Many have a soft delicate fragrance. The leaves are small, dainty and quite pointed. When the new foliage emerges towards spring it is quite soft and sensual with warm bronzy tones, which eventually mature to the more familiar glossy dark green. Despite the beauty of the flowers it is the foliage which provides the versatility so loved by landscape designers and gardeners all over the world.

Sasanqua Camellias are extremely tolerant of being shaped, cliped, twisted and tied. They are ideal for hedges, screens, espalier, topiary, growing in a container etc. etc. Or you can simply use them as a foliage (and flower) backdrop for your borders and shrubberies. Sasanquas are fast growing and probably the most sun tolerant of all the Camellias so you can be a little more random when choosing your planting position. We rate these plants very highly and consider them to be an essential element of any planting scheme.
