Today's Flowers; Camelia sasanqua;


This beautiful, white Camelia sasanqua is the first to flower in my garden, always right at the beginning of autumn, it shows of its soft flowers with big yellow centers.It is a very tough shrub or tree as it can grow quite large. Easy to grow, it demands not much, reasonable soil, mine is clay, acidic and it is also drought resistant and has never any diseases or insects which chew its leaves like C.japonica. Sasanquas come in many colours, single and double flowers, they all are worthy to grow. They can be grown from cuttings or from seed which might give you a nice surprise.





Please visit Today's Flowers and enjoy;

Lovely flowering Camelia sasanqua.
Just checked my database this beautiful plant needs USDA Hardiness Zone: 7 to 9.
We have only 5b in our area.
Thank you for sharing the picture and information.
Einen lieben Gruss,
