Camellia hiemalis ‘Showa-No-Sakae’

Theaceae
Evergreen, Shrubs

CAMELLIA

Native to eastern and southern Asia. There are more than 3,000 named kinds of camellias, and the range in color, size, and form is remarkable. The genus includes the plant from which we get tea, but most garden plants are robust shrubs that flower in winter or spring.

 

Camellia hiemalis

Includes a number of varieties formerly listed as sasanquas but differing in their later, longer bloom and heavier-textured flowers.

‘Showa-No-Sakae’

Fairly fast, open growth to 3 ft. high, 6–8 ft. wide, with arching branches that make it good as an espalier or in a hanging basket. Semidouble to double flowers of soft pink.
