Camellia sasanqua… a Fall Southern Classic

November 11, 2011

Fall is the time for one of my favorite evergreen shrubs to shine… the sasanqua Camellia.

My three sasanqua Camellia’s are in full bloom right now and really putting on a stunning show. This fall blooming Camellia starts flowering in my garden late October and will last until December, but November is when C. sasanqua’s peak in my garden. I have about a dozen camellias in my landscape,  (mostly C. japonica, late winter/early spring blooming), but welcome the floral simplicity of the C. sasanqua  in my autumn landscape.

  Sasanqua Camellia ‘Yuletide’ is a favorite in my garden, with single brilliant red blooms and prominent yellow stamens, which blooms now and sometimes until Christmas.

Sasanqua camellias are the easiest camellias to grow as they can take just about any exposure from partial shade to full sun. These evergreens will grow 8-10′ tall (some can get bigger) and there are even some dwarf varieties that stay under 5′.

This is an unidentified sasanqua Camellia in my garden with single pink blooms.

The photo below , C. japonica (winter blooming) Nuccio ‘Bella Rosa’, has formal 4″crimson red blooms with a long winter blooming season , even though right now mine is loaded with buds and blooming ( go figure).

Now is the time to shop for Camellia sasanqua in nurseries because they are in bloom and you can easily decide which color and variety you would like to add to your garden.

So search out one that you will like and find a home for one of these striking evergreen shrubs in your landscape.

Beautiful, I had never really heard of a Camellia, or maybe just never knew what they were until this post. What wonderful color so late in the season, I will definetly get some for my garden. Thank you for sharing.

I am so jealous right now. LOL! They are just so beautiful. The red blooming ones are my favorites. I so wish we could grow them here.

How beautiful and so nice to have some that bloom now. I never realized there were varieties that did that. I always think of them in late winter. I’d be happy anytime they showed up tho ~ they are so pretty.

Hello superb website! Does running a blog such as this take a great deal of work? I have virtually no knowledge of programming however I had been hoping to start my own blog in the near future. Anyway, if you have any suggestions or tips for new blog owners please share. I understand this is off subject but I just wanted to ask. Thanks a lot!

Greetings. I recently discovered this great site and I honestly like it. I love to speak about pokemon go android occasionally. Good to be here, regards!

I was just searching for this information for some time. After six hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your website. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that do not rank this kind of informative web sites in top of the list. Normally the top web sites are full of garbage.

July 13, 2017 at 4:54 am

Greetings! I’ve been following your weblog for a while now and finally got the bravery to go ahead and give you a shout out from Austin Texas! Just wanted to say keep up the excellent job!

Thank you for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do a little research on this. We got a grab a book from our local library but I think I learned more from this post. I am very glad to see such great info being shared freely out there.

One thing tht iѕ often forgotten aboᥙt the hoje imрrovement catalog is that it is often an excellent
plⅼace to find gift ideas foг your friends and famiⅼy.

Our team of scientists and engineers have woгked with this uniqu multi-functioned combustion catalyst
since the midd 1980’s. One notable tidbit of trivia iis that Sears was approacheⅾ to sponsor the show which would’ve put Craftsman tools in the
hands oof Tim “The Toolman” Taylоr (as opposed to the fictiⲟnal “Binford” brand), bbut Seaгs rejected the offer because
they feared Tіm Aⅼlen’s prior convictiоn on a drug ccharge might be
interpreted as unfriendⅼy to families (funny, since Нome Imprrovement latesr fell
under tһe moniker of the Walt Disney Company).

Hi there! I realize this is kind of off-topic however I had to ask. Does running a well-established blog such as yours require a lot of work? I’m brand new to blogging however I do write in my journal everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my own experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!

An fascinating dialogue is worth comment. I feel that it is best to write more on this matter, it may not be a taboo subject however typically people are not sufficient to talk on such topics. To the next. Cheers
