Camellia sasanqua 'Sparkling Burgundy'

Regular price $18.00 Sale

Sparkling Burgundy Sasanqua has a purplish-red color flower with a wispy spreading habit which will be as broad as high, at least 6-8 ft. It is quite vigorous. If one likes the color of 'Shi-shi-gashira' but needs a taller plant, this this is the one for you. This will be often labelled as C. heimalis, as it is a likely cross between C. sasanqua and C. japonica. It seems to be slightly more cold-hardy than C. japonica and is often used as an understock when grafting Camellia japonica cultivars. Of course it is a much earlier bloomer than C. japonica, starting to open in September. Most all Sasanquas will do well in full sun to part shade if given adequate moisture. Even though I consider Camellia species some of the most drought tolerant plants once established.
