Luscious hot pink flowers in the middle of winter!

Ah, sasanqua camellias are the unheralded aristocrats of the garden world. They are in that rare class of flowers that bloom in the darkest days of winter, and they bloom with complete abandon. (Unfortunately they shudder at a truly cold winter, so they reserve their unparalleled beauty for mild winter gardens.) If you are lucky enough to live where they love, though, Shishi Gashira Camellia (Camellia sasanqua 'Shishi Gashira')will reward you with eye-candy from Halloween through Christmas (at least).

This evergreen is a wider than it is tall, so it fills in your bare spaces quickly and well. Shishi Gashira is covered in a profusion of semi-double flowers in an eye-catching hot pink with a sunny yellow central eye – the perfect foil for gray winter days. The flowers are classic cutting flowers and a dozen blooms floated in a large bowl of water makes and unforgettable centerpiece for the holidays.

This excellent shrub is so versatile, too. Use it in foundation plantings where its evergreen leaves will hide unsightly edges. It grows low enough to tuck under windows without blocking the view. Mass several of them under tall trees or at the edge of the property to draw the eye. Use them singly as a natural sculpture by the pool.

Shishi Gashira has a unique weeping form that just adds to the romantic quality of this beautiful shrub. Their branches will trail and off of rocks and walls and over the edges of large containers.

This will truly be a welcome addition to our garden, so order your Shishi Gashira Camellia today!

* Beautiful double hot pink flowers in the winter
* Perfectly sized for modern gardens
* Weeping foliage
* Great in containers, borders & flower beds
