Dwarf Sasanqua Camellias (2 to 5 feet high)
Need a reliable fall flowering, low maintenance, evergreen hedge or shrub? These 2-5' high dwarf Sasanqua Camellias may be just the ticket! Flowering can begin as early as October and may last into the new year and unlike the large type Japonica Camellias the petals of the flowers can add a blanket of color beneath the plant as well on the plant. These are generally slow growing densely branching plants that require almost no pruning to keep them in top form. The Sasanqua Camellias are fairly adaptable to soil types and will revel in full sun to part sun conditions. They do still prefer a well-drained, average moist, fertile, acidic soil and an organic mulch mulch for optimum growth, vigor, and flowering. These miniatures of the Camellia world also make easy Bonsai specimens. See our Camellia and Sasanqua Growing Guide for more detailed growing, pruning, fertilizing, and planting information.
