Large-scale, mid-season bloomer Kanjiro Camellia (Camellia sasanqua 'Kanjiro') makes an impeccable backdrop or privacy screen in your landscape. You'll adore the formal look of the fragrant, cherry-pink Camellia blooms and rich, dark green, evergreen foliage.

A go-to choice for professional designers, vigorous Kanjiro is remarkably versatile in the landscape. Put it to work in your front or backyard...or use it to decorate a woodland with an incredible display of showy, cerise-pink blooms.

Planting and Application:

Study the semi-double blooms closely and enjoy their mild fragrance. Each one is a work of art with petals edged in red and growing paler near the center boss of bold, golden stamens.

  • Set the stage for contemplation in a Zen Garden with this flowering broad-leaved evergreen. Allow the flowers to shine in late fall and early winter; and the glossy, toothed leaves will play a lustrous supporting role for you year-round.
  • Why not treat yourself to a Garden Room? Make the most of your property with flowering "wallpaper" of a Camellia sasanqua Kanjiro spaced eight feet apart on center (measured from the middle of one to the middle of the next).
  • Use one as a room divider in a small yard. With it's upright, dense habit, a mature Kanjiro makes an elegant separation between two distinct outdoor living spaces.
  • You can even grow dark pink Kanjiro blooms in oversized patio pots for many years. Keep them on rolling plant caddies to easily show them off in a prime spot during their flowering season.
  • Hide your neighbors and boost your privacy with a long hedge around your pool deck. They won't block your sun, but will effectively block prying eyes!

#ProPlantTips for Care: 

Care for Kanjiro Camellia starts with a planting site that receives at least four hours of sunlight a day. This plant resents standing water, so mound up if your soil isn't well-drained.

  • Support these landscape assets with symbiotic Nature Hills Root Booster formula used in the planting hole. Finally, apply a layer of pine bark mulch over the top of the root system, but never directly touching the stems.
  • Apply supplemental water the first season and during longer periods of dry weather. Once the roots are established, it will be rugged and able to withstand short dry spells.
  • Prune in early spring to shape and to remove any damaged branches; cutting at a 45-degree angle. Fertilize Camellias with a flowering Acid Lovers formula in early spring, following directions on the label.
