Plant Guide

Camellia sasanqua 'Setsugekka'

Evergreen shrub with lax, flowing branches and glossy deep green leaves. Flowers in autumn and early winter with fragrant, pure white, semi-double flowers with prominent yellow stamens and somewhat ruffled edges. Flowers drop before browning.

Can be trained as an espalier or grown as a hedge, standard, or single specimen.

Suitable for a sheltered, semi-shady or sunny position, but avoid hot afternoon sun. If the position is too shady, fewer flowers will be produced. Frost hardy but flowers may be damaged by early frosts. Prefers acidic soil conditions.
